Getting a Job or Volunteering

If you are thinking of finishing school at 16, you can spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while you are in part-time education or training.  After 18, you can get a full-time job.  Whatever your situation, there are always plenty of options available to you, please get in touch with our Careers Team for advice and guidance or visit the C&K Careers website.

Applying for a Job

Once you have found a job, you will need to show your suitability for the role to potential employers.  A finely-tuned CV and a well-structured covering letter will make a first good impression and is worth the time and effort.  Time spent preparing your job application and thereafter preparing for any potential interviews is time well spent.
