Job Title: Associate Programme
Working For: On Purpose
Salary: £22,500 PA
The Associate Programme is the perfect launch-pad for your purpose-driven career. It is a one year programme that combines paid work with professional and personal development.
Here’s how it works
Placements: You work in two purpose-oriented organisations for six months, often including strategically important work and reporting to senior management within those organisations. Associates have, for example, managed a climate activism campaign at Ben & Jerry’s reporting to their European Head of Social Mission, built an operational plan for regional centres for food waste charity FareShare reporting to its CEO and analysed impact investment deals at Big Society Capital. You take on new challenges and use your existing skills to solve key problems for the organisations.
Mentors and coaches: You meet a mentor fortnightly who guides and challenges you to add value in your placement. You meet an executive coach every quarter focused on your personal development.
Training: Every Friday afternoon you hear from experts from diverse sectors who share their knowledge and experience with you and your cohort. We receive training from top professionals including McKinsey, Ellen MacArthur Foundation and our alumni who work in social enterprise organisations. Your cohort is also a powerful group of like-minded people with whom you share your learning and experience.
Community: We’ve had more than 1,500 Associates, placements, mentors, coaches and trainers across London, Paris and Berlin all of whom contribute to building a sustainable economy.
The Associate Programme is full-time, based in London and runs for 12 months from April 2018. You work in your placement 4.5 days a week and spend Friday afternoons with your cohort in training.
You need to have a valid UK work permit to apply, as we are not able to sponsor visas for the programme.
Closing Date: 19 November 2017
Interviews will take place in the weeks commencing 20th November and 27th November and on 12th December.
