Youth in Romsey offers an employment service where young people can search and apply for part or full time jobs with a member of staff to help them along the way.
We help with job applications, covering letters and preparing CV's and are also available to conduct mock interviews for those who need help preparing for a telephone, online or face to face interview.
This service is available Monday to Friday during all of our opening times.
Young people can also drop in to the centre, or can arrange a one-to-one session with a youth worker to discuss their career options.
We often have local volunteering opportunities to help you get experience of being in a working environment.
Unfortunately, we currently don’t have any volunteering opportunities available in the local area, however if you would like to be considered for any future opportunities please send us a copy of your cv and a covering email letting us know the type of experience you would like to gain.
