We’re looking for the best and brightest graduates to tackle London’s toughest social challenges.

You’ll serve in demanding frontline roles; learn from top social entrepreneurs and work alongside leading institutions including the Cabinet Office, Teach First and Citizens UK.

We set the bar high.

Our fellows must have the courage, vision and audacity to create a better society. Over nine months you’ll be challenged to:

  • Serve in tough frontline roles. Your first four months will be spent in schools, care homes, and homeless shelters, understanding first-hand the daily realities of people living at the margins of society.
  • Develop leadership, professional and creative skills. Throughout the programme you’ll be mentored by our remarkable faculty of social entrepreneurs, business leaders and policy makers. Our curriculum includes financial modelling, public speaking, and design methods.
  • Make a tangible impact. By the autumn, you’ll be delivering a consulting project to national charities, corporates or government; and developing a working social enterprise.

The programme will close with Grad Fest, a chance to showcase your work and network with employers and partners. You’ll gain a Year Here diploma, and endorsements from key industry leaders.

We believe in innovators, agitators and doers, not just cogs in the system.

If you are idealistic but critical; curious and brave; and want to take a rigorous approach to real issues – apply now.

Here’s the link: http://yearhere.org/welcome/.  Applications close at midnight on the 3rd of February.
