Graduate Programme 2017
Are you a bright, forward-thinking graduate who can help us beat cancer sooner?
At Cancer Research UK (CRUK), we are collectively leading pioneering life-saving research in the fight against all cancers. Innovative science, dynamic business capabilities and bold marketing strategies combine in a world class organisation pioneering scientific excellence. We have an ambitious goal: to accelerate progress in cancer research and see 3/4 of people beat cancer in the next 20 years.
Our graduate opportunities are truly unique. With a commercial strength equivalent to a FTSE 350 company, we are Number 2 in the Guardian UK 300 and are one of the UK's most widely recognised brands. We reach and engage millions of supporters through bold marketing strategies, and are constantly evolving, adapting and implementing the best strategies and technologies to beat cancer sooner.
If you're a graduate full of fresh ideas and with a history of achievement, both academic and extra-curricular, we have 5 streams for you to choose from, each designed to give you a solid foundation for your career. This year we are recruiting for graduates in:
- Policy Information and Communications
- Fundraising and Marketing
- Scientific Strategy and Funding
You will have a passion for CRUK and an understanding of the work we do to drive our ambitions. You won't be afraid to think big and try new ideas and you will always be looking to learn from the people around you. As a solutions focussed graduate, you will be able to show a consistently strong work ethic and have the ability to apply your experience to the work we do. As one of our trainees, you'll join us at our London office where you'll be exposed to 4 different teams across your area of interest, spending 6 months in each - with our Finance stream being 3 one year placements.
You'll establish an in-depth understanding of the organisation whilst developing all the skills and experience to help you thrive in your future career. To make sure you get the most out of your scheme, we'll give you plenty of training, development and support, including a dedicated mentor and a development plan that's tailored to meet your personal needs.
Every day we achieve extraordinary things by being sharp, brave and united in our work. If you think you can help us beat cancer sooner, please visit our website today.
