As an admin, click "create project", follow the template you choose and then add your users into it when it has finished.

Hi, you need Admin permissions to create a project. If you're and Admin, follow the steps below.

  1. Select Projects > Create Project and choose Project Management.
  2. Enter the project name. Note that JIRA Core creates a Project key for you, but you can overwrite this if you want to. By default, you should already be listed as the Project Lead. 
  3. If prompted to create a link to another application, such as a Confluence space, leave that option unchecked for now. 
  4. Select Submit to create your new project.

Best Regards

Admin permissions was the issue. Thanks for your help guys!
