All our current vacancies for 16-18 year olds can be found in the vacancies section of our website.
Want to leave school to get a job?
Year 11 school leavers can start work or training full-time after the last Friday in June. You need to find a job with training such as an apprenticeship, or one which allows you to carry on studying part-time. Your school or college should provide careers advice and help to search and apply for suitable jobs and apprenticeships. Make sure you ask them for help if you need it.
Want to find a job after Year 12 or 13?
Your school or college should provide careers advice to help you plan your career path. If you're thinking about dropping out of college early without completing your course, make sure you speak to your tutor or careers adviser first. They can help you sort out problems, finish your course, or plan another direction. If you do decide to leave, you will get an official leaving date. After this date, if you are 16-18 and live in Leicester our advisers can help you find a new job, apprenticeship or educational opportunity. Just come and register at our centre.
In a job but want something new?
If you have a training provider at work, ask them what help is available to plan your career, or talk to your boss. This website is the ideal place to start looking for a suitable new job or apprenticeship.
About to lose a job?
If your job is temporary or you are going to be made redundant, use this website to start looking for a new opportunity. When you do become unemployed, as long as you are 16-18 and live in Leicester, you should register with us. You can use the self help area at our centre to get information about current job vacancies and how to apply for them. Our advisers can also help you to find a suitable job, training course or get back in to education. Visit our centre
16 and 17 year olds cannot usually get benefits. You can ask about benefits when you register for work at our centre. The Jobcentre Plus office will decide whether or not you can get any benefits.
Beware of job scams
Be very wary of job offers that look too good to be true, and never give out your personal financial details or make any payment to a company or individual offering you a job. If you're searching for a job online remember that while the big job websites check their listings, because of the large number of jobs they are dealing with, some bogus job opportunities still appear.
Keeping safe while job hunting is very important, so make sure you find out how to protect yourself. Get more information on the Crimestoppers website.
