Are you aged 16-19 and passionate about success?

Are you interested in technology, fashion, media, financial services or hospitality?

Do you want to earn money outside school hours, while building up your CV?

The Council are working with Inspire! to create 100 work placements for young people in exciting businesses in Hackney.



The Hackney 100 placement

Placements will last for a minimum of 70 hours. This can be completed in two weeks (working full time) or spread over a longer period, up to 6 months, to fit around your schedule.

You will be paid the maximum national minimum wage, which is currently £7.50 per hour. That's money that you can use to enjoy yourself or save for your future.


What you'll be doing

This will depend on your placement: you could be helping out on a project, working face to face with customers or leading on your own piece of work. All of our employers will expect you to be punctual, reliable and to pitch in as part of a team. You’ll be given a business mentor who will support you and help you get the most out of your placement.
