The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for young people.
In September 2020, the UK Government launched the Kickstart Scheme. Citizens Advice Hampshire is a Gateway for the Kickstart Scheme and we have currently got 40 placements in 12 of the Citizens Advice local offices across Hampshire.
Views from young people working at Citizens Advice on why it is a great opportunity to join the Kickstart Programme with Citizens Advice.
What Amelia (who joined New Forest Citizens Advice through the Kickstart campaign) said about her experience
“When I completed my Health & Social Care course I was a little worried about finding work and the jobs available to me but when my Work Coach spoke to me about the position at Citizens Advice I was quite excited. After my interview, I knew it would be a great opportunity and am even more excited about working there now”.
