Technology Graduate Scheme

Graduate Placement

We are looking for sharp and forward-thinking individuals who can use their creativity and passion for technology to help us beat cancer sooner.


Our Technology teams partner with colleagues across Cancer Research UK (CRUK) to deliver crucial and innovative technology solutions to enable the organisation to deliver its ambitious strategy: to accelerate progress and see three quarters of people beat cancer in the next 20 years. We’re a team of talented and passionate individuals with a strong reputation for creativity and innovation and we pride ourselves in putting our users at the centre of everything we do. Graduate opportunities at CRUK are truly unique. With a commercial strength equivalent to a FTSE 350 company, we’re currently ranked at number 2 in the Guardian UK 300 and are perfectly positioned to train the leaders of the future.


As a Technology Graduate Trainee, you’ll have the unique opportunity to divide your experience across diverse areas of the business and use your talent to help balance our strategic priorities with emerging opportunities and new technologies. You will get a chance to build relationships with and understand the vision of teams across CRUK, ensuring that everything we do delivers the most value for both our audience and our organisation. One rotation could involve delivering award winning and cutting edge infrastructure and internal systems alongside in-house technology experts. With the Digital team you will work with our talented digital professionals across user experience, digital content, web development and other areas of expertise to deliver best-in-class digital experiences to support our fundraising, cancer information and scientific research ambitions. Another rotation focusing on data services could see you gain experience in managing multiple data sources, understanding database quality management and learning to use tools that ensure a high standard of business reporting and data selection.


To succeed as a graduate on our scheme you will have a passion for CRUK and using innovative technology to drive our ambitions. You won’t be afraid to think big and try new ideas and you will always be looking to learn from the people around you. As a solutions focused graduate, you will be able to show a consistently strong work ethic and demonstrate how you have approached a problem truly innovatively, perhaps with technology or digital thinking, during your studies. We put graduates in challenging and exciting roles from the off, so we are heavily invested in your development and help you grow quickly towards being future leaders at CRUK. You’ll be free to explore your potential and shape the future growth of the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. 


We are brave, sharp and united. And we’re committed to enabling our supporters and staff to help beat cancer sooner in any way they wish – meaning that no one day in Technology is the same. If you think you can help us beat cancer sooner, then apply now!


Closing date: Sunday 3rd December, 23:55


At CRUK we value diversity and we’re committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce will help us to beat cancer sooner.
