The really short version:

At On Purpose we believe in harnessing the power of business to achieve positive social change. We are equipping the next generation of leaders in order to lead this change. We are looking for inspired individuals to join our April 2014 leadership programme. During your year with On Purpose you will:

  • Be paid to undertake two high-profile six month placements
  • Participate in half a day a week of world class training
  • Experience in-depth professional and personal development
  • Work 1:1 with highly-skilled mentors and coaches with senior level experience

The slightly longer version:

Is it time to kick-start your social purpose career? Find your purpose and start changing the world.

On Purpose equips high-flying professionals with the experience, skills and networks to launch a career combining the power of business with social and environmental objectives.

On Purpose is a one-year, paid leadership programme that combines two different work placements with intensive 1:1 support and world-class training provided by professionals from high-profile organisations across different sectors such as McKinsey, Bain, the Big Issue, UnLtd and Bridges Ventures.

There is enormous potential for using business principles to do more social good. We are looking for outstanding professionals with a track record of achievement and two or more years work experience in order to launch you in your career with social purpose.

On Purpose’s leadership programme can change your career and will connect you to likeminded people working to solve some of society’s biggest issues. You will fast track your social purpose career by learning from and tapping into hands-on placements, 1:1 support, your peers on the programme and On Purpose’s sector-spanning networks. Following the programme, Fellows continue to benefit from our extensive network of other experienced professionals.
