Adrian McCarthy is the Manager of For Purpose  and is responsible for the programme’s development and growth.

Adrian holds a BA in Drama & English from University College Cork. He began working with 2into3 in 2016 and took on responsibility for the programme, successfully placing 8 graduate trainees into not-for-profit organisations over the course of 2017. Adrian identified the need for a more structured and large-scale programme with the ability to attract real attention. Inspired by the overwhelming desire from graduates for a career path into the not-for-profit sector, Adrian instigated the For Purpose concept in early 2018 and has been leading on the launch of the programme later that year
