Hackney 100 Work Placements

Hackney 100 is a paid work scheme for local residents aged 16 - 19. It aims to give 100 young people who live or study in Hackney access to their first experience of work. 

Could you be one of the Hackney 100?

Are you aged 16-19 and a Hackney resident or student? Do you want to gain valuable work experience, earn money and build up your CV? 

Inspire! and Hackney Council are working together to create 100 paid work placements for young people at high profile Hackney businesses. These placements will run alongside your studies and fit around your schedule; they will last for a minimum of 70 hours up to a maximum of six months.

How much will I be paid?

You will be paid the maximum national minimum wage, which is currently £7.50 per hour. 

What will I be doing?

This is up to the employer you are placed with, but for all placements you'll be expected to pitch in as part of the team and be reliable, punctual and professional. You will be given a business mentor from the company who will help you get the most out of the opportunity.

How will the 100 young people be chosen?

You can apply through our website and your application will be looked at by the team at Inspire!, who are experienced at matching young people with job opportunities.

You will be invited along to an assessment session which is a chance for you to learn more about the placements available, and for us to work out who will be best suited to the opportunities. 

The successful candidates will be those who convince the team that they have what it takes to make the most of this opportunity. 

How do I apply?

Please fill out the online application form here. We will send you further details of the roles as they become available and invite you to the next assessment and information sessions. 

If you'd like more information, you can email the team at .

If you're an employer and would like to find out more about hosting a Hackney 100 placement, please visit Hackney Council's website.
