You should have a solid grounding in fundamental professional skills built up over at least 2 years in work.
We’re looking for curiosity, open-mindedness and a sense of possibility about growth – personal, professional and societal.
Passion for Social Justice
You should be thoughtful about society’s issues, critically-minded about what works and fired up about change.
You don’t let opportunities pass you by. You are seriously driven and you’re hungry for growth, for learning, for impact.
