The Kickstart Scheme provides local employers the opportunity to offer young people a 6-month job placement in their business, funded by the Government.
In offering these placements, your organisation can support young people to develop work ready skills for your sector, while also expanding your staff and supporting your business through Covid-19 challenges.
If you’re an employer and would like to get involved, please pre-register your placement opportunities:
Please note: This opportunity is provided by the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) and supported by Northumberland County Council. Any expressions of interest will be forwarded to NTCA. The council can support businesses in the application process.
