Finding a job

We can support you to get a job. We work with lots of agencies such as Links to Works, Prince's Trust and the Job Centre to make sure you get the best support. 

If you’re aged 16 to 18 you must be in education or a training scheme. Your social worker or personal advisor (after 18) is responsible for your education, training and employment planning so you must talk to them about what you want to do. You can follow different routes to find your dream job. There are resources online, or your personal advisor can help you get in touch with a careers advisor.

Other work and education resources in Medway include:

Apprenticeships with Medway Council

There are opportunities for work experience, apprenticeships and work in the council. If you're interested in a Medway Council apprenticeship you will be guaranteed an interview.

Your personal advisor can support you with your application and interview preparation.
