The Corporate Services Graduate Training Scheme is now open for applications.
The Corporate Services Graduate Training Scheme is designed to give high-calibre, business-minded individuals a broad exposure to all the Corporate Services disciplines.
It's a unique, fast-track opportunity and is a chance to make a real difference to the lives of people touched by cancer.
The work we do and where you fit in
We fund the work of over 3,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK and spend over ú217 million on research. Our centres of excellence attract internationally renowned figures, including Nobel prizewinners. We operate in 30 different cities nationwide. And we're regarded as the European leader in the development of anti-cancer treatments. In short, we operate on a significant size and scale.
This poses a huge test to our corporate support services to ensure that we provide the appropriate assistance for our scientists and fundraisers to achieve their respective goals. Your challenge will be to join the support teams and work to improve the infrastructure that helps Cancer Research UK to achieve its goals. Can you meet this challenge?
