We believe that young people have a lot to offer. We have kick started lots of young careers into different professions and we offer support and guidance along the way.

Once a year we offer a small number of apprenticeship and paid internship placements for Octavia residents aged16-24 years who are unemployed and not in full-time education. Both schemes offer young people the chance to work with Octavia for a year and study or train at the same time. The internship scheme is open to those who have completed a degree and are aged up to 25.

Find out more and how to apply via the Octavia Foundation’s website. Once you get in touch we will arrange to meet with you to discuss your goals and aspirations, before developing an action plan to help you to achieve them. Each plan is personalised to the individual.

We also offer drop-in job sessions which you can also find out about via the Octavia Foundation website. these are a great way to drop in and meet our team and talk in person about how we might be able to help your job search or career journey.
