Application instruction page

Applications for all but volunteer roles are now closed for this year. Please check back in January 2013.

Please read the instructions below for information on how to apply for a role in our Summer Programme. You are welcome to apply for more than one role. Please note that as we assess your application, we will consider you for all roles, but may invite you for an assessment for any of the roles, if we feel it would suit you better.

We would like to see the person behind the written application and you can do this through our new video upload. The video should be a short introduction of yourself and your experiences and should be no longer than two minutes. The video upload is optional but we very strongly encourage you to do so. It is a chance to bring your CV to life and to explain in more detail why you would like to work for The Challenge.

Applications with videos will be fast-tracked and strong video applicants will be invited to assessments first.

Applying for The Challenge

Follow this three-step process to apply for any of our summer roles:

  1. Make sure you have an electronic copy of your CV (Word or PDF) ready to upload.
  2. Get your video ready (click here for instructions).  We recommend that you upload your video on to youtube and set it as “Unlisted”. This will prevent anyone, but those with whom you have shared the link, to access it.
  3. Complete the online application form on the next page.  Remember to have your CV and video link ready. Please note that you will not be able to save your application once you have started it.
