So what makes Joy Careers so different?

 

Well… for one we aren’t sponsored by any evil corporations as a self-funded social enterprise none of our careers advice is influenced by any welfare or educational institutions and is built with our core values in mind.

Our focus is to better employment opportunities for young people by modernising job search. We’ll connect you with potential job opportunities through internships, community events, mentoring, networking, and training and development opportunities. Our job is to help you feel empowered to find work that reflects your passions, needs, skills and interests.
