‘Charityworks’ is an organisation that sets graduates up in a traineeship position with non-profit organisations across the UK. The graduates are in a full-time, paid position, with a mentor, and the chance to conduct some research of their own.
Charityworks was set up to provide the non-profit sector with a means of finding and training talented individuals, provide those individuals with a way into the sector, and promote the non-profit sector as a viable, attractive career. In 2014 there will be 100 places available, with more than 50 organisations.
Applications can be made from the 5th of February to the 16th of April, via the Charityworks website, where more information – for example about partner organisations, and views from previous participants – is also available.
