Charity and not-for-profit

The roles a graduate might undertake range from those most obviously associated with charity work (such as fundraising, hands-on humanitarian or community work and political lobbying) to the more corporate (such as roles in finance, marketing and web development). Not-for-profits in the medical field may also employ medical or research and development specialists. The main employers in this sector are charities, foundations, non-governmental organisations, social enterprises and international governmental organisations.

Amnesty International holds on to its spot as the most popular charity again this year and WWF retains its place at number four. Elsewhere, however, things have changed: four charities/not-for-profits have risen in the ranks, two have fallen and two newly make the list this year (the National Trust and WaterAid).
