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 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.

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