Developing future leaders

Our graduate programme brings together two of the UK’s leading charities to deliver a truly unique and worthwhile learning opportunity and experience.

It’s unique

You’ll benefit from a jointly delivered development programme designed by Macmillan Cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation. One of the only programmes of its kind in the UK, you will spend one year at each organisation, giving you the opportunity to experience and learn 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, able to take initiative and hungry to learn from those around you.

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 include new learning experiences that will challenge and stretch you.

What you will do

You’ll complete two twelve-month placements: one at Macmillan Cancer Support and one at The British Heart Foundation.

You will work in a variety of teams across each organisation, including areas such as Income Generation, Campaigning and Health Care, Business Strategy and Support Services. Your work will be varied, and you will have a range of short- and long-term projects; taking ownership on some, providing vital support on others.

Throughout your time with both organisations you’ll be fully supported with a clear development programme of training and learning opportunities.

The cause

In the UK today 2.5 million people are living with cancer and 7 million people are living with cardiovascular disease. Do you want to work in organisations where what you do supports the people affected and helps drive ground breaking research? If so, apply for this ground-breaking scheme.

All the work you do will have real applications for both organisations so you can be confident that your contribution will make a significant difference.

Our teams at Macmillan and The British Heart Foundation will work closely with you across the two year programme to ensure you have a great experience, make the most of your opportunities, grow and learn. We are excited to work with enthusiastic and driven individuals and we are very proud of this award winning scheme.

We value diversity

We want our workforce to represent the people it supports. We welcome applications from all graduates who meet the essential criteria and particularly those with a BAME background.
