The scheme

Each year in January, June and September, Cancer Research UK hosts around 45 interns to volunteer on 12-week projects, which will help us continue the pioneering work we do in order to beat cancer sooner.

Our internships are based either in London, supporting our head office teams or regionally, supporting our events or volunteer fundraising teams across the country.

The scheme has been consistently recognised by external bodies as one of the top internships in the country. This year Cancer Research UK were ranked 80th out of the Top 100 Graduate Employers on Rate my Placement, and our scheme won the National Council for Work Experience’s ‘Best Charity Sector Internship’ award in 2013.
