Applications for Charityworks Taster Programme 2019 open on the 10th October 2018. To apply, read the information in each of the tabs below before proceeding to click apply.
You must be either in your final year of university or a graduate (any year) and be expected to attain (or have already attained) a 2:1 at degree level (or equivalent) OR a Master’s in any subject.
You must have an interest in or desire to learn more about working in the non-profit sector or be seeking to obtain a placement on the Charityworks programme starting in September 2019.
You must be from a Black, Asian or Minority ethnic background (BAME) including mixed backgrounds.
Ability to competently use basic IT software packages (e.g. Microsoft Office or equivalent), which may include any adaptations/adjustments as required.
In order to participate in the Charityworks Taster Programme, you must have the right to work in the UK.
Due to the fact that we partner with a range of organisations to gain experience in a vast number of varied roles, it is not possible to provide a detailed job description that applies to all positions at this stage. We will be looking for candidates that are motivated by an opportunity to explore the non-profit sector as a career path and in particular, are committed to their own personal development.
There are 8 core competencies which we believe enable you to succeed in the sector, and by which we assess applicants to our Charityworks Graduate Programme. We’ll look for these competencies during your time on the Taster Programme should you wish to be fast-tracked to our graduate scheme.
Now please read through our FAQs below:
I want to be considered for the main Charityworks programme starting in September 2019. Do I need to apply to this separately?
No – by applying to the Charityworks Taster Programme you have the opportunity to automatically opt into the Charityworks programme recruitment process for 2019. If you are successful on the Taster Programme you will automatically be selected to participate in a Charityworks assessment centre in May & June 2019.
I already have voluntary experience in the sector and know this is where I want a career – is this programme right for me?
Yes. As well as supporting graduates to learn more about the sector, the Taster programme provides a unique opportunity to develop your skills, learn from experienced people development experts and potentially get hands on with interesting projects. As a result, it is fantastic preparation for succeeding on Charityworks.
I’m interested, but I’m not sure I want to apply to Charityworks in 2019 – is this programme right for me?
Also, yes! The Taster Programme will enable you to learn more about the sector, what kind of professional career you can have, and how this makes an impact on society. As such, it’s a great way to explore if you want to get paid to change the world!
Why does this programme exist?
Charityworks actively seeks and encourages applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds. More specifically, our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has indicated that the programme currently marginally under-represents minority ethnic groups and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from a BAME background. This is just one approach to that active encouragement as set out in our diversity statement which you can find by clicking here.
