Do you have an idea to make the world a better place?

Interested in training to become a Future Charity Leader?

upReach, the 2019 Charity of the Year (<£1m), are running a competition to identify future leaders in the charity sector. The winner receives a paid internship, with fast-track to an Assessment Centre for the upReach Future Charity Leaders Programme (FCLP). The FCLP is a unique 2.5 year graduate scheme combining rotations in key areas of charity management, with supporting university students on upReach’s personalised employability programmes.

Competition
In 500 words, tell us about your idea to have an impact on society:
  • What is the problem in society that you’d like to solve?
  • What actions would you take to address this, and how might you fund it?
  • How would your impact be measured and evaluated?

Prizes
The winner gets a 3 week paid internship (Living Wage) at upReach, in London or Manchester, with an opportunity to fast track to the FCLP assessment centre. Runners up receive the opportunity to be mentored by a senior charity leader.


upReach welcome submissions from recent graduates, career changers or students. Your ideas to solve issues in society can be related to social mobility or any other topic.

As part of our commitment to support and promote workplace diversity, we will be reviewing submitted entries using a name blind process. Only one entry per person will be accepted. The judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Find more information on our Competition Flyer and apply below by midday on 5th February 2020.
