Graduate Trainee – BAME

Salary: £23,000 pro rata per annum
Working hours: Full time
Contract: Fixed term for two years
Based at: Manchester

About you

⭐ You’re just setting out on your career, and want to gain experience in managing and leading projects.
⭐ You’re from a black, Asian, and minority ethnic background.
⭐ You have a commitment to making a difference, and want to work in a values-led organisation.

You could be our perfect Graduate Trainee!

We are looking for candidates who are BAME, at an early stage in their career, have talent, and a commitment to learn in a job which is worthwhile.

We are proud of our diversity (29% of staff are BAME) and we value lived experience (40% of staff have experienced mental health problems). Succession plans have identified a diversity gap in our middle managers, and this programme is one element of our plan to address it.

We can promise that it will never be boring working in the ever changing world of social enterprise and changing lives. You will be required to have a level of resilience and be able to work effectively with uncertainty.

We are very proud of the work we do and are looking for someone to join our team who is committed to our values and able to grow their leadership internally and externally.
