Kickstart your career with us

We're providing jobs for 50 unemployed young people across the region as part of the Government’s new Kickstart scheme.

The Kickstart scheme funds six-month paid jobs to provide fully funded opportunities for 16-24 year olds – who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment – to gain valuable work experience.

As one of the first companies to sign up to the scheme, we have placements available now. Placements are available in business administration, customer service and service delivery with more being available throughout 2021.

We're also offering a further incentive of a £500 bonus for each person who completes a placement in addition to comprehensive training and support.

Group Chief People Officer, Adele Barker, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting the government’s Kickstart scheme and offering much needed prospects for young people in our region who are suffering from a lack of opportunities as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. “As a company we are passionate about providing opportunities to young people in the South West and we believe that by investing in the future of our region, we are not only improving the quality of life for today's residents and visitors but are also taking responsibility for future generations.”

Anyone interested in undertaking a work placement under the Kickstart scheme should speak to their Work Coach at the Job Centre Plus to find out more details.
