 Charityworks is a paid, 12 month graduate scheme which gives you all the tools you need to build a career in the UK non-profit sector.


Charityworks Online Q&A: Meet the trainees
26th Jan | 6pm


Meet some of the current Charityworks trainees in an opportunity to ask them questions about their experience and thoughts about the programme, getting an insight directly from those taking part this year. Ask them about their thoughts and experiences of the application and recruitment process, or perhaps what it’s like to work at their respective organisations, or what they’ve valued most so far from the leadership development programme. It’s your chance to speak live to our trainees.

The Graduate Scheme

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 what you need to work and lead in the non-profit 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. You’ll do a real job in a placement organisation ranging from national charities like AgeUK and NSPCC to award-winning local housing associations like Poplar HARCA in the East End of London, to national organisations like the National Housing Federation.

You’ll be matched with a Charityworks Programme Manager and 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.


Roles available

There are a range of very diverse roles available on the scheme. Some examples are:

  • Business development and fundraising
  • Communication and campaigns
  • Human Resources and Internal Communications
  • Research and Policy
  • Frontline and customer facing


Applications for Charityworks close on 28th February 2017.
