You could be part of a brand new programme, Ethos Young Leaders. Get on board and we will help you:

  • Work in technology/sales/marketing/digital/data/research/people/business management/events/finance/video production and more …

What’s in it for you?

  • Six months of paid work for a minimum of 25 hours per week at minimum wage (rate determined by Gov and your age)
  • On-the-job training in a role suited to your interests and abilities
  • Mentoring to overcome hurdles, set and meet your personal goals and develop critical and sought after workplace skills
  • Help to find routes to a longer term job or develop a permanent role in Ethos


We are looking for self-starters. Individuals who want to work in a place that is all about “purpose not profit”. You may not know what your real strengths are or where your career will develop but we have recruitment and mentoring tools designed to help you with these key issues.
