Do you need to Kickstart your career?


We are excited to be working with the government on the new Kickstart scheme which helps 16 – 24-year-olds gain paid work.

If you’ve found yourself unable to find work in these uncertain times, hopefully we’ll be able to give you a helping hand through the Governments Kickstart scheme. We have lots of exciting opportunities, keep reading to see if this is for you…

What do I need to qualify?
  • You’ll need to be aged 16 – 24
  • You must be currently claiming Universal Credit

How does it work and why should I apply?
  • Jobs are minimum of 6 month PAID placements but lots will have more permanent potential.
  • The roles will be varied and hopefully, there will be something for everyone including admin, sales, marketing, manufacturing, construction and more.
  • No experience? No problem! The employers will be looking for good character and potential to help you gain the work experience you need.
  • Training and support plans are in place for every placement to ensure you get the most out of this opportunity.
  • Plus it’s a great chance to gain experience, try a new career, develop your skills and receive training as well as money in your pocket.
How will the Acorn Kickstart Team help?
  • They’ll go through your skills and hobbies and what sort of careers might suit you.
