Expansion of The JOBS Project

We are pleased to announce that our NEW London Jobs project site is now up and running. The new location is situated in Crystal Palace and straddles the boundaries of five London Boroughs: Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark, and Lewisham. We are looking forward to supporting and building connections in the area with referral partners and employers to continue to support young people into employment.

Hi There … Lisa here
Let me introduce myself … I am new to the Barnardo’s family, but I am not new to working with young people.
For the last 27 years I have worked in FE colleges, supporting young people with their chosen vocations & career choices
My role here at Barnardo’s on The JOBS Project is to ensure our young people are engaged, motivated & feel inspired throughout their journey to employment
My teaching experience has given me a wealth of knowledge of which I am passionate about sharing with young people starting out in their working life
I look forward to meeting you on ‘The JOBSs Project’

The JOBS Project

Are you not in education, employment or training and are between the ages of 18 and 29?

We can help you into employment through an 8-10 week course which will give you all the skills and knowledge you need for a job. This is great to add to your CV!  Through this process, you will build on your employment experience, CV and interview skills alongside essential skills such as teamwork, communication and confidence building. We will provide support as you make the transition into work. The JOBS Project is working in partnership with Amazon.

All course materials are provided, and reasonable travel and lunch costs will be reimbursed to you.

The JOBS Project has dates running through 2024 and 2025 in Coventry, Dartford, Dunfermline, Gateshead, London, Manchester and Swansea with new sites opening soon!

Our course is an 8-10 week employability programme.  Attendance is required on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 9am-3pm.

It is free to join and helps you gain the valuable skills needed for employment in 8 to 10 weeks, ending with a guaranteed interview with Amazon!
