What can we offer you?

Your Development

Your work

We strive to place our Graduates in business critical roles from day one as we believe that by challenging you, we accelerate your development. Your placements will be varied and stretching in their nature, meaning that from the beginning you will be contributing to our cause; whilst drawing on and developing your individual strengths, talents and experience.

The rotational aspect of our scheme really develops your cross-organisational knowledge as a graduate. You will get the opportunity to network with senior stakeholders across the charity, both during your training and within your placement. However our focus is on you. So there is often an opportunity to experience work in other streams of the business – in order to diversify your portfolio. This means you can really develop and shape your future career at CRUK through the placements you get involved with.

Development Opportunities

We have a wide range of development opportunities that you will be involved in throughout your placements. We have formal learning skills sessions and workshops in areas such as Relationship Management, Influencing, Presentations skills and Project Management. You will also take part in various engagement activities to broaden your knowledge of CRUK as a whole; such as passion talks and volunteering. Your interactions with senior stakeholders is key to your professional development, which is why we set up ‘Lunch & Learns’ and career talks with them with the opportunity to present your findings to them at the end of your placements.

As part of our Finance graduate stream you will also be working towards your professional accountancy qualification.


You will be heavily supported by your line manager, past graduates and  a mentor, as well as HR and our Talent Advisor – so there will be lots of people to support you and your career. You will have a placement point of contact who can offer advice on your development and career goals and your line manager will support you from an operational side. When you join you will also be matched up with a ‘grad buddy’ as we really encourage peer to peer support to excel you to success.


By investing in you we are investing the future of CRUK. Join us today.
