Join Circle Collective
We understand that not every programme with rigid, strict classroom methods is suitable for everyone, and our unique, person-centred Back Your Future programme acknowledges these differences. Every young person's journey with us is as different as they are.

Your Circle Journey
Weekly 1:1 mentoring sessions
Work experience shifts at Circle Collective
Our shops, Circle Collective, form an essential part of our programme. They are home to our real-life work experience that provides the practical, hands-on side to our programme. Working with our Circle Collective retail managers, you will learn all the essential skills that are needed, including how to use the tills, customer service principles and communication skills. Work experience shifts are four hours long, twice a week.
As part of the behind-the-scenes training we provide, our motivational workshops allow you to build your confidence, as well as working on interview skills and CV writing. We give sessions on goal setting, presentation, credit ratings and how to protect them, rights and responsibilities as well as behaviour in the workplace. These sessions are delivered by our incredible associates, whose experience and knowledge of the workplace make them invaluable employability mentors.
Meet the employers!
Meeting the employers is a key stage in your journey. Learn what the employers are looking for, ask about your career options and see what it is like working for different employers and in different work environments. These employers also run interesting and constructive workshops on their businesses and organise tours of their facilities.
Access to jobs
We work directly with a large network of employers who recruit high quality, entry-level jobs directly through us. This means you will have access to opportunities that would not otherwise be open to you. We teach you about online applications and support you speaking directly with employers with our Job Shop on the Road.
Ongoing, in-work support
…however, you can't get rid of us that easily. Once you've found a job, Circle Community will regularly check in, to make sure everything is going well. We will support you for as long as you need it!
