The Kickstart Scheme aims to find young jobseekers aged 16-24 and introduce them to employers for six month paid placements, funded by the government.
The young person gains valuable experience, both in interview and in the role itself, there's a possibility of longer term employment at the end of the placement and at the very least, they walk away with all-important experience to help them in the future job search.
For employers, it's a chance to help bright, capable young people whose employment chances and confidence have been severely dented by the world pandemic. It's also perhaps a chance to open up the diversity of an organisation by considering candidates who might not usually come their way.
