The Kickstart Scheme made up part of the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ skills and employment programmes, which also include Apprenticeships, T Levels and Traineeships.
The Kickstart Scheme
Our Greater Manchester Kickstart Scheme offered six-month jobs for young people aged 16 to 24 years old who were currently claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment.
For employers not only did you have a young person working for you, funded by the Government, but the employee will also be developing transferable skills that was aimed at increasing their chances of sustained employment.
Working in primary care in Greater Manchester is a varied, busy and exciting place with many opportunities not just in nursing but administration, HR, finance, communications and project management amongst others. This was a chance for employers to offer young people a taste of what it’s like to work in the much-loved and fast-paced environment of the NHS.
