The scheme comes as part of the Government’s Plan for Jobs initiative and aims at creating thousands of new fully funded jobs across the UK, with a particular focus on supporting young people to build their experience and help them move into sustained employment.

To support this great initiative, we are have over 16 Kickstart placements across our organisation in a variety of roles.

We will provide excellent quality six-month placements fully supported by our teams. In partnership with the Care Plus Group successful individuals will also benefit from an excellent learning platform and exceptional employability training.

If you or someone you know fits the criteria, we would love to welcome them to apply for a placement opportunity.
