In the past, Cancer Research UK interns have done everything from supporting large-scale fundraising events, to championing our campaigns at events for MPs, or creating scientific resources for the health sector. Our 12 week long internships are projects delivering above and beyond the work we already do, meaning that every hour our interns give brings us one step closer to beating cancer.
Whether you’re a graduate or undergraduate, you can develop your skills at one of the UK’s leading charities and make your progress, our progress. Whatever project you take on, you’ll have a dedicated intern manager who will support you through your projects and personal development. We’ll also provide you with training to enhance your own personal development, as well as advice on how to get a job within the charity sector. All of our internships are performed on a voluntary basis, but we will reimburse reasonable lunch and travel expenses.
You need to be a strategic thinker, numerate and literate and also have confidence in using basic PC applications. You will need to be a good communicator and be able to take the initiative in carrying out work and research. Please take a look at the individual internship role profiles to confirm the specific skill requirements of each role.
