Projects you can get involved in

Jemma receiving her certificate for helping us from YvonneAt C&K Careers you can get involved in a number of different projects.  These are just some things you can help us with - we are planning more over the next year:

Recruitment and selection - this means having a say in the staff we employ at C&K Careers.  Even interviewing candidates for jobs, including manager and careers adviser positions.

Mystery shopping - visiting our Careers Centres and judging the service you receive.  You will feedback your findings to one of our managers!

Being a participation champion - this means being available for us to consult you about our services and products.  It could be we ask you to give us feedback on one of our publications or a new service we are developing.  We might ask you to do this by email or feedback in person with a group of other young people. We may suggest you ask others to give us feedback too.



Jemma told us she wanted to get involved and ended up making a film called Steps2Train. With our support, Jemma was filmed interviewing trainees and their managers at seven different training providers in Calderdale. The film will be used to help other young people find out about the training they can do and take the first step towards their career goals. Or read it (67kb PDF).

Thank you so much for listening and acting on everything that the young people said, so many people ask their opinions and then don’t act on their suggestions.
Michelle Ross, Young People's Voice and Influence Worker. Kirklees Youth Council, commenting on the development of ckcareersonline.

What do you get out of it?

A chance to...

  • make decisions about our products and services
  • meet other young people from Calderdale and Kirklees
  • develop different skills and knowledge - we will give you a certificate to say what you have done
  • be rewarded with a voucher for some activities

And it will look great on your CV!
