Finding Work

Finding Work

We will provide you with a one-time offer of £50 to purchase clothes for an interview if you are aged 18-21yrs.

We will also help by providing you with interview practice, assisting with applying for jobs and creating your CV and personal statement. Contact your Personal Adviser or Support Worker about help when applying for a job or preparing for an interview as they can support you with this.

The Job Centre Plus will also be able to support you to look for and apply for work if you are not in education or employment and adult learning can support you too.  Ask to speak to the ‘Work Coach’ at the job centre for help. If you are claiming Universal Credit you will be expected to work with the DWP to find a job.

Kent County Council now also guarantees care leavers the opportunity to be interviewed for any jobs applied for where the minimum entry requirements have been met.
