Working for a charity can bring you many benefits and we’ve listed just a few of them here.

Charities want to help you be the ‘best you’. There are plenty of progression opportunities and you’ll benefit from excellent employee support and training

Charities have strong values. Charities aren’t guided by profit. They are guided by a set of principles, which form the core of an organisation's being and inspire everything it does

You can work for a charity whose work means something to you. You’ll get the opportunity to make a difference to the world as well as gain an apprenticeship

There’s more flexibility. Charities can offer employees a more mindful and flexible work environment. They care about their employees and you’ll never be just a number

Apprenticeship opportunities within the charity sector are growing. There are more and more organisations offering the scheme and you now have a huge range of placements available up and down the country

The experience you gain in the charity can be applied universally. The skills you’ll learn from working for a charity can be taken anywhere. It’s the perfect way to start your career
