Apprentice Team Ltd have officially helped 1,000+ participants start their placements across England, Scotland and Wales as part of the Kickstart Scheme. We first commenced the recruitment for kickstart vacancies in May 2021 within sectors such as Retail, Customer Service, HR, Warehousing, Administration and many more and just under a year later, we have reached this huge milestone.
This isn’t just a huge milestone for us; it is also a huge milestone for the individuals we have helped secure employment after the rollercoaster of a few years we have had. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a lot of people, especially young people, across the country to become unemployed but as part of the ‘Plans for Jobs’, the Kickstart Scheme has helped over 100,000 participants secure employment across the country.
“I am so proud that Apprentice Team Ltd have been part of this amazing scheme. Apprentice Team Ltd have worked so hard and have gone above and beyond to ensure participants who are preparing for interviews or have already commenced their placement are getting the best possible support and experience. I have spoken with many participants myself and the feedback I received has been amazing and it is great to see so many young people starting their careers or getting back into work”-Tom Fearn, Recruitment Manager
As we are now coming to the end of the Kickstart Scheme, we are seeing participants complete their placement, progress onto employment with the majority of them completing an apprenticeship qualification alongside their new role. Our main aim for the Kickstart Scheme was to see participants progress not only with experience, but with qualifications and knowledge as well.
DWP, including our National Kickstart Accounts Managers, have been so helpful in assisting us to refer participants for these fantastic roles. A lot of young people will benefit greatly from this scheme.
We are still recruiting for many roles across the country that are available until the 31st March 2022. To apply, please contact your Work Coach at your local JobCentre Plus or click the below button for more information about the vacancies.
