Finding Employment

Finding employment for the first time can be difficult especially for someone with little or no experience of looking for work. If you need additional support looking for work or are having difficulty getting a job we might be able to help.

How can the YST help?
The YST can support 16 - 18 year olds (up to 25 if you have additional needs or are a care leaver in certain circumstances) to find work and access opportunities if they are work ready. Here's how:

  • Careers guidance

  • Support with applications and CVs

  • Information & support about training, apprenticeships, education, volunteering and job opportunities

  • Help preparing for interviews

How can I access this support?

Coronavirus update for YST services

At Gloucestershire Youth Support Team (YST) our priority is the safety and well being of the young people we work with and the staff that work so hard to support them. So for the foreseeable future, the YST will be delivered online and over the phone rather than in person.

All group work and events have been postponed until further notice, but we aim to keep in touch via social media and here. You can still contact us at

We will continue a skeleton service for those who are considered at high risk and do what we can to ease the burden and risks of social distancing and social isolation. We know these are difficult times, keep safe.
