    I‘ve always had an interest in working in the charity sector and making a positive difference. When the opportunity came up to intern for Macmillan, I knew I wanted to apply. The internship helped me to gain more experience and to explore the many career paths you can journey on in the charity sector. Taking up this internship was also a great development opportunity for me to learn and develop new skills that will equip me in my early career, and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my internship.

    I was really interested in working within the charity sector and had a keen interest in marketing which I was looking to pursue further. When I saw the internship available at Macmillan, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do this whilst making a positive difference.

    Hear Luke Jackson talk about why they chose to complete their internship with Macmillan.

    One of the most attractive things about Macmillan is the values-driven nature of the organisation and the people working here! This flows throughout the workplace culture – everyone is very accommodating with any individual circumstances you have, and it feels as though you’re valued as a person and not just an employee! It surprised me how lovely and helpful everyone is here - there’s always someone to learn from and people are always happy to sit down for a tea break and chat! Macmillan is also surprisingly large which means you’re always being exposed to new people, new experiences and get to see first hand how large organisations function.

    I got an internship with Macmillan through Change100 which is an organisation that aims to increase visibility and opportunities for people with disabilities or neurodiversity. I wanted to work in the charity sector with a focus on either health or social change. Thankfully, Macmillan encompasses most of the issues I am passionate about, so it was a good fit as I was able to support my passion for health and medicine, whilst also developing and applying the skills I have learned in my studies regarding social and political matters. Additionally, I was appreciative of the working culture as I learned through reading my contract that I wouldn’t have to work over 40 hours, and that I can have flexibility around how I work my contracted hours. I have never had this experience before, and as someone who experiences multiple health issues, it was such an amazing experience to know that I would have the opportunity to work to the best of my ability without having to sacrifice my wellbeing.
