To apply for the Charityworks Fast-Track you must meet the following eligibility criteria. Please note that we do make exceptions for these criteria on a case by case basis. If you do not meet the criteria but believe we should consider your application, please email us at

Qualification: Owing to the diversity of opportunities available through Charityworks, we now welcome both graduates (any classification) and non-graduates to apply.  This means you don’t require a specific qualification in order to apply to Charityworks.

Experience: 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 from August 2021.

Background: To apply via the Fast-Track, you must be from a Black, Asian or Minority ethnic background (BAME) including mixed backgrounds.

Skills: Ability to competently use basic IT software packages (e.g. Microsoft Office or equivalent), which may include any adaptations/adjustments as required.*

Competencies: 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 Programme.

Beneficiary and customer focus, Communicate with impact, Build positive relationships, Resilient, Motivated by results, Innovative and entrepreneurial, Adaptable, Commitment to personal development

More information about the competencies we look for are available on our website at
