How does the application process work?

• Graduates apply to the programme via the For Purpose website.

• Applications for the programme are screened by the For Purpose team.

• Candidates who meet the criteria are invited for an interview with the recruitment team.
• Candidates who are successful at the screening stage are then shortlisted for the final interview stage with the For Purpose partner organisation.

• The graduate trainee is selected and an offer is made directly by the partner organisation. The trainees contract of employment is issued directly by the partner organisation, not For Purpose.

• Traineeships are typically 12 months in length.

• The goal at the end of each traineeship is for the graduate to remain and progress with the organisation after their training period.
