Raising Youth has begun working with young people to support them into employment, this is to increase the chances of young people accessing paid employment. This service offers choices of how we can help you with becoming employed. Look at the boxes below to see what's on offer.
Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Should you only be looking for help with writing a Curriculum Vitae please specify this within your referral. An Employability Coach will be assigned to you and organise a meeting to create a CV with you.
If you're feeling anxious about an interview or the interview process we offer the choice to be assigned an Employability Coach who will organise mock interviews with you until you feel happy to be interviewed by an employer.
We also have our full Employability Programme offer available to enrol onto. This will cover CV writing, mock interviews and support into employment. Details of this can be found below.

This will then be followed by a job search, enrolling you onto job boards, creating cover letters and even making applications.
