“Job Opportunities” Scheme has been developed under the “Young Professionals Programme” by leveraging the “Business and Professionals Programme” in partnership with a range of organizations across industry sectors.

This scheme aims to help students, graduates, young professionals, experienced professionals and returners the opportunity to improve their employment prospects and to encourage greater socio-economic diversity within different industry sectors. At the same time, this scheme also benefits our partners and potential employers by providing them access to talented candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds across industry sectors and helps them meet their diversity targets.

The “Job Opportunities” are merit-based, available at different locations and on different compensation basis which will need to be confirmed with the organization providing the specific “Job Opportunity” during the application process (please refer to the section “How to I apply” below for details).

We will update the “Job Opportunities” on this page on a monthly basis and candidates will need to apply before the deadline for each opportunity directly to the organization (please refer to the section “How do I apply” below).
Please note that these opportunities are only available to members of the British Pakistan Foundation and to find out more about how to become a member, please visit the “Join Us” page.

We currently have the following “Job Opportunities” available with our partners (To apply please refer to the section “How do I apply” below):
