Internship Scheme

Whether you’re a graduate, undergraduate, school leaver or looking for a career change, as a CRUK intern you’ll be developing your skills at one of the UK’s leading charities.

Graduate opportunities

For our entry level vacancies, the job description will contain all of the individual role requirements. Some roles will ask for a minimum of a 2:1 undergraduate degree (in any discipline).

To start the application process, you'll need to fill in an online form, upload your CV and complete three competency based questions. In your CV please include examples of any work experience, voluntary positions or university held positions.

Stage 2. Home based task

If successful on initial application, the next step will be for you to take part in a task that can be completed from home, this will be assessing your prioritisation skills. You’ll also be invited to come to our Head Office in Stratford for a interview with representatives from the team you are applying to. It’s also a great opportunity to see where we work and meet some of our current employees to talk about their experience.
