Discover | Careers with social impact

Discover | Careers with social impact is our careers programme for LSE students and recent graduates looking to explore the opportunities available in fields or roles that have a positive impact on society. 

As well as exploring options in NGOs and charities, the programme also encourages you to explore the full breadth of ‘social impact careers’ across many sectors, as well as supporting you to understand exactly what a ‘career with social impact’ means to you. 

In addition to running a selection of employer and careers consultant led sessions during Winter Term, the programme is also home to a hub of useful resources for those interested in generating social impact through their work.
