For Purpose Ireland's Not-for-Profit Graduate Programme

Looking for Purpose in your Career? Join Ireland’s Largest Not-for-Profit Graduate Programme

The For Purpose Not-for-Profit Graduate Programme connects graduate talent with not-for-profit organisations across the sector in Ireland.

We look for graduates with broad problem solving and project management skills across multiple disciplines such as business, science, health, food, engineering, arts & humanities, social sciences, media, teaching, law, marketing, planning, construction… you name it… who are looking for a career with purpose.

The programme offers an entry point for graduates into the sector and help organisations to build their sustainability. Traineeships have been offered in the areas of fundraising, communications and marketing, however the programme is not limited to these areas.

Today’s Not-for-Profit Graduates, Tomorrow’s Not-for-Profit Leaders.

Graduate Trainees on the programme are supported by mentoring and training sessions facilitated by For Purpose throughout their traineeship to help shape their career in the not-for-profit sector.

The not-for-profit sector needs graduates capable of making a difference and opportunities for progression and career development are ripe. Since 2012, 38 Graduate Trainees have been placed into a range of not-for-profit organisations via For Purpose's programme. 60% of those placed since 2012 are still working within the not-for-profit sector today.

The For Purpose Not-for-Profit Graduate Programme provides an opportunity to make a meaningful, genuine impact on society through your career.
