The On Purpose Associate Programme 


The On Purpose Associate Programme is a one year leadership programme that allows you to transition into the social impact space. It combines paid work with professional and personal development and you become part of an inspiring network of like-minded people.


You work in two purpose-oriented organisations like Big Society Capital or the Ellen MacArthur Foundation for six months each, where you take on new challenges and use your existing skills to solve key problems for the organisations. In weekly training sessions, you learn from experts of diverse sectors, who share their knowledge and experience, and you work with a mentor and an executive coach. You become part of a global network of more than 1,500 Associates, placements, mentors, coaches and trainers all of whom contribute to building a sustainable economy.

You are paid a salary of £22.5k. 90% of programme participants continue working in the social enterprise sector and earn on average £45k six months after finishing the programme.

Applications close on Sunday 27th May 2018. Come to an event on 21st March, 17th April or 9th May.



Volunteer opportunity - YourOwn Place


Wonderful opportunity to become a Volunteer Tenancy Mentor- gain new skills, meet like-minded people and make a difference in your community.


Moving to independence is a really big step for any young person.  Even more so if you've been in care, don't have lots of support or are struggling on a low income. A mentor can help to bridge the gap and be someone to chat to confidentially about goals, aspirations and difficulties along the way.


If you would like to become a mentor …


We offer you


  • a fun and interactive two-day training course covering topics such as what mentoring is and isn't, listening and questioning skills, using an asset based approach, money skills exercises and child/vulnerable adult protection
  • a certificate, lots of on-going support, peer encouragement, further training and celebration events and the satisfaction of helping someone else.


We ask that you

  • will undertake a DBS check and short interview before we carefully match you to a mentee
  • preferably meet with your mentee weekly and no less than fortnightly. The early days are critical to building a relationship and making it work
  • remember the mentee is in charge of the relationship and decides what they want help with, they have the answers to their own issues they just need you to help them tease out the details or act as a sounding board
  • undertake a final questionnaire to help us evaluate our services.
