Get My First Job

GetMyFirstJob is your gateway to hundreds of Apprenticeships that will help you kick start your career. We work with training providers across the country to help young people earn while they learn.

Starting Your Career

How GetMyFirstJob Helps You

All you need to do is register your details on the GetMyFirstJob website. Tell us about the types of jobs you’re interested in, how you got on at school and complete your contact details. This should take no more than 10 minutes and will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to find the right job to kick start to your career.

From the moment you register, a range of training providers, college and employers will have access to your details to help them fill their current vacancies. Many of the employers that advertise jobs with us will provide you with the opportunity to start an Apprenticeship, Diploma or Foundation Degree that they will sponsor with the support of government agencies such as the Skills Funding Agency. This will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to earn, learn and gain the vital skills and experience you will need to build your career.

As new job vacancies in your area are advertised, employers and training providers will use the GetMyFirstJob database to search for people who have registered on the system and match the criteria for the new vacancy; matching you to the type of job you are interested in. These companies will use the following types of search criteria to match people to jobs:

·         Job interests – as part of your application you will select the type of jobs you would be interested in applying for

·         Exam results – either actual or predicted

·         Location – How far would it be for you to travel to your new job, on foot or by using your own or public transport?

If you are selected as a candidate – shortlisted - for a role, you will be contacted by the person managing the job vacancy and they will conduct a brief telephone interview at a time to suit you. During this time, you will be given more details about the job and the company to help you prepare for a possible face-to-face interview. Please take a look at our handy hints and tips on preparing for interview. The person managing the job vacancy will telephone you after the interview to let you know how you did and they will also organise training and start dates for successful candidates. If you are successful, you should take a look at our hints and tips for being successful in the workplace.

Whilst waiting to be contacted about vacancies, you can log into the system at any time to keep your profile up to date, upload a CV or search for vacancies that interest you. Stay in touch with us too by joining the GetMyFirstJob Facebook community where you can find out how others are doing, what their tips for success are and to share your news and views.
