Welcome to the Southampton Young Adults Employment Hub
Southampton City Council are working in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and No Limits to support the city’s young people into training, apprenticeships and employment opportunities with the new Young Adults Employment Hub.
We are able to signpost to advice and support around housing, benefits, health and wellbeing to provide a holistic and person-centred service for young people. The Young Adults Employment Hub utilises a wealth of virtual tools including web chat, video conferencing, online resources and podcasts so we can still work with people during the pandemic.
If you’re aged 16-25 and live in or around Southampton, you can get support from us to find employment. To get support from a dedicated Young Adults Employment Hub Worker:

Southampton City Council, No Limits and the DWP are launching a new Young Adults Employment Hub in Southampton. We offer a non-judgemental, person centred service that supports you in an empowering manner, helping you to achieve your goals and aspirations.
Southampton City Council Employment Support Team
We have been supporting Southampton residents for 30 years and in that time we have supported over 3,000 people into paid employment. We use the model of supported employment to help people of all backgrounds to overcome their barriers to work in order to find meaningful and sustainable employment. Find out more
We have 2 Employment Officers working on the hub who will be able to work with you on a 1:1 basis and can support with anything employment related such as CV writing, job applications and interview preparation.
No Limits is an award-winning, local, independent charity providing a unique combination of prevention, early intervention and crisis support to young people, based on a nationally evidenced model. We provide information, advice, counselling and support through a range of services available ‘under one roof’. Set up in 1993 we have grown to support thousands of young people in Southampton and across Hampshire through our Advice Centre and the specialist projects we deliver as well as drop in sessions in schools/colleges.

The No Limits project worker on the Young Adults Employment Hub will be able to support you with a range of issues including sexual health, relationships, mental health, housing, debt and employment.
