    I wouldn't put "just" and "a/one week ago" in the same sentence. "Just" in this context already means "a short time ago" so you don't need both.

    I've just started a new job.
    I just started my new job.

    I started a new job a week ago.
    I started my new job one week ago.

    If you said "I just started a new job", someone might then ask "Oh really? When did you start/how long ago did you start?" Then you would say "A week ago."
