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?
