CASE Europe Graduate Trainee Scheme Application 2019/20

"The CASE Graduate Trainee Scheme introduced me to such an incredible and important sector of education and culture fundraising and all of the different roles and responsibilities within. I feel I've learnt in a year what others entering the sector might take three or four years to cover.
"I have no plans on leaving the fundraising sector, or higher education, anytime soon and I'm delighted to have been given the opportunity of a new permanent role following my completion of the scheme."
