“I’m really delighted that we are hosting the Charity Interns project at NCVO. The voluntary sector needs to explore innovative ways to solve its recruitment and skill challenges, while also working to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce. We can only benefit from exploring new routes to roles in our sector and tapping into this under-utilised talent pool. We hope that by hosting the project through incubation at NCVO we can learn from its work, share insights with our members and support the sector by finding ways to help tackle our shared recruitment and diversity challenges.” Sarah Vibert, CEO
Alzheimer’s Society is working towards a world where dementia no longer devastates lives. They do this by giving help to those living with dementia today, and providing hope for the future. Alzheimer’s Society will be taking part in the Charity Interns pilot autumn 2023, hosting an intern.
“We are absolutely delighted to partner on this initiative that will have an incredible impact for the individuals involved and could potentially facilitate a change in attitudes and perception across the whole sector. Recruitment remains a challenge for many organisations so creative and inclusive programmes like this will be critical in addressing this.”
Nick Billingham, Managing Director
