A range of support is available to help you achieve your potential and secure employment or training opportunities.

Work experience opportunities
Knowsley Council is providing paid work experience opportunities for care leavers in a range of roles across the council. Placements are matched according to your qualifications and interests with many opportunities available. As well as giving you real, paid work experience, you will be supported throughout the placement by a Knowsley Works mentor and a Personal Advisor.
When the council employs other companies to carry out work, it will ask the company about job / volunteering opportunities for you.
