Working in the Charity sector

Are you passionate about a cause? Keen to make an impact and feel that you have made a tangible difference?

Working in the charity sector can be immensely rewarding, although it also has its challenges. It’s a vibrant, dynamic sector; many charities operating today are highly professional, efficient organisations which are finding new ways to adapt to the changes in funding patterns and political landscape, such as the impact of Brexit and Covid-19. 

We have a number of events planned in Hilary 2021 to help you gain insights into the sector and ways of getting experience.
