The UK Government has recently launched a new ‘Kickstart’ scheme, designed to help employers and young job seekers through fully funded six-month placements; creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs for young people across the country.
Môn CF have been appointed as a Gateway for the Kickstart Scheme, to support employers to apply and provide opportunities for unemployed young people to help them gain valuable work experience, develop new skills and increase future job prospects.
Since April 2019, we have supported over 170 residents of Anglesey into sustainable employment helping them to achieve over 500 accredited qualifications.
Applications from employers are underway, we are accepting applications from employers across all sectors throughout Anglesey and Gwynedd. We are representing small to medium employers who want to offer one or more Kickstart placements. Môn CF will work with local businesses to group 30 placements together and apply on their behalf.
