Job Description

Rising inequality. An ageing population. Climate change. Widespread social isolation. We are surrounded by pressing social issues, and we need talented, committed people to work on solving them. Charityworks exists to help those talented people develop good, sustainable careers dedicated to solving those problems. We want people to be able to work on those issues over the long term, to build a life for themselves while also becoming brilliant social leaders.

Charityworks is a paid, 12 month graduate scheme which gives you all the tools you need to build a career in the UK social sector. As a Charityworks Graduate Trainee you will deliver a full time job in a partner charity or housing association, and take part in a acclaimed leadership programme which will introduce you to all aspects of working and leading in the social sector. You’ll build experience of the sector, gain an understanding of the key issues, and have access to a national network dedicated to making a difference.

Charityworks is a national programme, offering over 100 placements each year. Placement organisations in 2014/15 included national charities like AgeUK and NSPCC, award-winning local housing associations like Poplar HARCA in the East End of London, to national organisations like National Housing Federation or the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations. Graduate Trainees in those organisations performed real jobs, ranging from delivering front line services through to working on research and strategy, and were matched with a Charityworks Programme Manager and external mentor to help them make the most of the year.

The 12 month Charityworks programme makes this much more than just a great job. 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 3 pieces of independent research, helping to raise your profile and develop your understanding of your environment.

Applications are now open, and will close at midday on 14th April 2015. To apply, and to find out more about the programme, just visit the Charityworks website.
