The Kickstart Scheme is a 6 month paid job, funded by the Government. It provides a fully funded opportunity for young people to gain experience of working for Citizens Advice Northumberland.
The Kickstart Scheme was announced by the Chancellor in the Summer, and will offer hundreds of thousands of job opportunities over the next two years. A £2 billion pot is available to fully fund exciting positions with businesses across Britain.
Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to 16-24 year olds, who are claiming Universal Credit, and are at risk of long term unemployment. If you have a work coach they will talk to you about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you.
To apply for these positions you have to be referred by your Work Coach. Ask your Work Coach about these opportunities and look on the Apprenticeships website.
