Adrian McCarthy

For Purpose Manager

Adrian McCarthy is the Manager of For Purpose  and is responsible for the programme’s development and growth.

Adrian holds a BA in Drama & English from University College Cork. He began working with 2into3 in 2016 and took on responsibility for the programme, successfully placing 8 graduate trainees into not-for-profit organisations over the course of 2017. Adrian identified the need for a more structured and large-scale programme with the ability to attract real attention. Inspired by the overwhelming desire from graduates for a career path into the not-for-profit sector, Adrian instigated the For Purpose concept in early 2018 and has been leading on the launch of the programme later that year.

Adrian can be found attending performances and gallery exhibitions in his spare time.
