Kickstarting their way to a new career!

The Government launched its Kickstart scheme in September 2020 providing funding for 250,000 job opportunities for young people who have been affected by the economic impact of the COVID pandemic and at risk of long term unemployment.

ResourceBank is a Kickstart Gateway and has embraced the spirit of the scheme by creating five job placements and is delighted that all five roles are now filled. So it’s a big welcome to Ben, Emily, Kerys, Josh and Niles who will be trained and supported in the role of Trainee Telemarketers to help promote the Kickstart scheme to other employers.

Team member Emily says,

“I had been out of work since 2019 and Kickstart and ResourceBank have given me the chance to gain experience and confidence in the workplace, as well as being able to help people who are in the same situation that I was in”

Our new Kickstarters

Ben

This is a chance to get real world experience, getting an insight into recruitment and working on my personal development is a brilliant opportunity – especially in this current climate.

Kerys

I get to learn new skills, meet new people, and hopefully give something back to the company.

Josh

This really means a lot to me as I enjoy the work life in an office and this will give me even more experience to help and develop for the future to come.
This opportunity means everything to me. It has enabled me to get out, meet new people and develop new skills.

Niles

The Kickstart scheme and ResourceBank have offered me a chance to be able to improve upon some existing skills, gain confidence within a more active workspace and to help me adjust to working again.

Emily

As a Kickstart Gateway, ResourceBank can guide you through the placement criteria and application process and apply on your behalf to the DWP for the funding – all at no cost to you.
