The scheme

Every year in January, June and September, Cancer Research UK hosts around 40 interns to volunteer on 12-week projects. Our internships are a great chance for you to get a unique insight into the charity sector, boost your CV and discover and develop your skills – all whilst playing your part in the fight against cancer.  

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

Cancer Research UK internships have been consistently recognised as some of the top in the country. This year we were ranked in Rate My Placement's Top 100 Undergraduate Employers, and our scheme won the National Council for Work Experience’s Best Charity Sector Internship Award in 2013.
