Discover our opportunities for graduates and students in 2016

26th January 2016

This month Frontline launches a number of exciting opportunities for students and graduates in 2016.

We have some fantastic openings for those who feel passionate about Frontline’s mission and are keen to enhance their career prospects. These include paid head office internships, term-time jobs for students and insight days aimed at under-represented groups. We’ll also be recruiting for the 2017 Cohort of our Times Top 100 graduate programme this September.

Throughout January and February we’ll be at campuses across the UK giving you the opportunity to ask questions about the range of opportunities we offer. You can find out when we’ll be visiting a campus near you by visiting our events page here or our events page on Facebook.

So what exactly are these opportunities that we’re offering students?

Brand Manager positions
Are you a high achieving student looking to develop your employability skills? Do you want a part-time job to fit in with you academic studies?

We are looking for passionate, enthusiastic and proactive people to support our recruiters on university campuses to help us achieve our mission.

“Working for Frontline has given me the chance to develop many skills that will prove incredibly useful whatever career I choose: marketing, networking, speaking confidently and persuasively to name just a few. It’s also incredibly exciting to be at the forefront of something new and pioneering.”
– Harry Cloke, University of Warwick

Insight Days
Are you looking to get a greater insight into a career in social work?

As part of our commitment to recruiting a diverse cohort that represents the society it serves, we are hosting Insight Days in April and June to address under-representation within the Frontline programme under the Equality Act 2010 (UK). This year we are offering students and graduates the opportunity to find out more about social work – and to meet with role model representatives from social work. 

Applications for the Insight Days are now closed. If you have any questions about this opportunity please email
Are you a penultimate year student looking to gain work experience? This year we are offering penultimate year students the opportunity join the Frontline head office in central London for a three-week paid internship over the summer.

By joining our team you’ll be making a valuable contribution towards helping to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children and families. We are also committed to helping you develop a range of transferable skills that will help you to succeed in your future career. Throughout the internship, you will be given support from our team to give you exposure to different experiences and improve your employability. After completing the internship last summer the two interns were successful with their applications to join the Frontline Graduate Programme in 2016.
