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

Are you looking for a career with purpose? Join Ireland’s Not-for-Profit Graduate Programme 

For Purpose is Ireland’s not-for-profit graduate programme. The programme connects not-for-profit organisations with graduates who are looking to make an impact in their careers and begin a career with purpose. 

We look for graduates across a range of disciplines with broad problem solving and project management skills. The not-for-profit sector is very diverse and requires graduates in roles ranging from social care, fundraising, communications, HR, finance and more – For Purpose aims to offer graduate opportunities across a broad range of career paths.

Fostering Future Leaders

Graduate Trainees on the For Purpose programme are supported by one-to-one mentoring sessions provided by experienced professionals working in the not-for-profit sector as well as attending roundtable events covering a range of areas directly related to working in the not-for-profit sector. For Purpose provides you with the supports and foundations to begin your career in the not-for-profit sector and develop your skills and potential. For Purpose provides an opportunity to make a meaningful, genuine impact on society through your career.

The first For Purpose campaign will be launching in January 2019. Watch this space for more updates until then!
