Tips given for graduate charity schemes
Thursday, 25 June 2009
Graduate job hunters with an interest in charity work have been given some tips on the options available to them in the current market conditions.
Taking the example of 21-year-old university leaver Jack, Debbie Andalo wrote in the Guardian that he could take up a place at a graduate management training scheme for one of six charities which have collaborated on a new initiative.
Starting in September, the Charity Works graduate scheme offers two-year placements, which come with training and a £20,000 salary.
Those looking for graduate jobs within the local government are also advised to consider the national development training scheme, a two-year council-based initiative offering a salary of £22,000.
According to Ms Andalo, the NHS also runs a programme focused on human resources and financial management within the healthcare services.
The Black Country branch of climate change and environmental group Groundwork recently let graduates know that they are also still offering schemes to help them gain work experience, according to Community Newswire.
