CSR Eagles is a top rated graduate programme targeting people interested in a career in corporate social responsibility.
We want our graduates to shine so we start by providing them with three weeks of paid training, valued at £2,000. This is followed by a six-month paid internship where you will enjoy a unique opportunity to gain insights, skills and experience working with some of London’s leading companies.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is when companies integrate ethical, social and environmental concerns into their business operations. In CSR Eagles, the graduate will be placed in the Community Affairs department of a major corporate, helping them to ensure that the local community benefits from the knowledge, skills and resources the company has to offer. Activities on placement vary but often include organising volunteering activities for employees, supporting community and charity partner relationships, promoting new volunteering events, fundraising activities and processing application forms from charities.
Last year’s placements included: Allen & Overy, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Broadgate Estates, EY, Olswang, Rendall & Rittner, Bank of Tokyo, Charles Russell Speechlys, Chaucer, Citi, Credit Suisse, Heart of the City, ING, London Market Group, Nomura, Prudential, RBS and RSA
Eagles is a flagship social mobility graduate programme of the East London Business Alliance (ELBA), a charity determined to play its part in tackling social deprivation in all its guises by harnessing the corporate social responsibility efforts of nearly 100 member companies.
Since it started in 2005, EAGLES has become a top rated graduate programme, helping talented local people to find a career in the City. We are running four programmes in 2017 all providing up to three weeks of paid training, prior to a six-month paid internship with some of London’s leading companies.
