Want to get paid to change the world? Welcome to Charityworks, the UK non-profit sector’s graduate scheme.
As a Charityworks Graduate Trainee you will deliver a 12-month full time, paid job in a partner charity or housing association and take part in a year-long acclaimed leadership programme introducing you to what you need to work and lead in the non-profit sector.
In your placement you might be providing vital business support and evaluation at a national charity like NSPCC, leading on the improvement of infrastructure projects with a housing charity, driving international business with the RNLI, or serving a community in a local project. Wherever you’re placed, you’ll have a chance to make a real impact through your work.
Alongside your placement, you will take part in a leadership programme. You’ll be supported by our programme team and an external mentor to help you make the most of the year. Twice a month you’ll come together with your fellow trainees and leaders across the sector to explore and debate the key issues affecting your work and society as a whole. You’ll also produce your own research, helping to raise your profile and develop your understanding of your environment.
At the end of the 12-month scheme you’ll have the experience and skills to kick-start your professional career in the UK social sector and beyond. Charityworks graduates are highly desired with 98% securing employment within 3 months if they were looking for it. Typically, over 66% of graduates stay in their host organisations at the end of the year, and 96% of graduates since 2009 have remained within the non-profit or public sector – some have even gone on to start their own organisations. Charityworks is also counted amongst the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.
Whatever you do in the long-term, Charityworks is a great way to launch your career and get paid to change the world.
