Before a young person participates in the Young Person's Guarantee they will already have undergone an extensive period of supported job search and, where appropriate, will have received help with interviews for suitable job vacancies.

Young people participating in the Young Person's Guarantee will continue to receive help with job search and interviews:

As part of the in-work support given to Future Jobs Fund employees, employers are expected to provide training and support to help them move into permanent, sustained employment. From April, Jobcentre Plus will also contact FJF employees as they come towards the end of their job to provide information about jobs available in the local area. This support will complement the activities employers are undertaking to help young people in to sustained jobs.

Young people on other strands of the Young Person's Guarantee also receive tailored help with job search and interviews.
