Developing future leaders

A graduate programme that brings together two of the UK’s leading charities to deliver a truly unique graduate development programme.

It’s unique

You’ll benefit from a jointly delivered development programme designed by Macmillan Cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation. Uniquely, you’ll get to work for a year in each organisation, giving you the opportunity to experience and learn from how both organisations operate.

About you

We’re seeking outstanding, talented and ambitious recent graduates to join us for this fantastic partnership. You’ll be self-motivated, team-oriented, and hungry to learn from those around you. You’ll also have a desire to be accountable from day one.

If that’s you then please read on

You’ll work on a variety of hands-on projects and enjoy real responsibility. Every day will be a learning experience that challenges you.

You’ll gain new skills and knowledge about business trends and issues by liaising directly with experts in their fields. You’ll benefit from a wealth of networking opportunities, which will help you make valuable contacts for your future career.

What you will do

Over the two years you’ll complete two 12 month placements: one in Macmillan Cancer Support and one in The British Heart Foundation.

You will work in a variety of teams across each organisation. These could include areas such as income generation, campaigning and influencing, or business strategy and support services. The work will be varied. You’ll be assigned a range of short and long term projects, taking ownership on some, supporting on others.

Throughout your time with both organisations you’ll be fully supported with a clear development programme. All the work you do will have real applications for the organisations so you can be confident that your contribution will make a real difference.
