Change100 is the summer internship programme designed to bring together leading employers with talented students and graduates with disabilities and long term health conditions. That might include people with physical impairments, sensory impairments, mental health conditions, learning disabilities or difficulties, and other long-term health conditions.
The programme aims to remove barriers experienced by disabled people in the workplace, to allow them to achieve their potential. You will have the opportunity to join a leading organisation and gain the experience, confidence, networks and skills necessary to accelerate your career.
Change100 is a unique programme which offers you:
- an inclusive recruitment process
- valuable, paid experience with a prestigious employer
- confidence in disclosing your disability
- support in identifying and requesting disability-related adjustments
- a development programme to help prepare you for your next career move
In 2016, we partnered with a range of prestigious organisations to offer internship opportunities. Over the last 3 years Change100 students have already made their mark with 49 leading employers including Arup, BBC, BBSRC, Barclays, Bevan Brittan, Centrica, the Department of Health, the Department for International Development, Experian, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Interserve, Lloyds Banking Group, Medical Research Council, Swiss Re, Taylor Wimpey, Thomson Reuters and Wall to Wall.
In addition to your placement, you will take part in a development programme which will combine group work with self-directed learning. The development aspect of Change100 will help ensure that you get the most from your time on the programme and position you well for your next career move.
Change100 is designed for talented university students and recent graduates with any disability or long-term health condition. If you are unsure about your eligibility, or to ask us any questions related to your application, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
