Kickstarting your career with Great Places

POSTED: 10/05/2021

Kickstart Scheme


Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Investment team has been supporting our customers with their employment needs, by helping them secure positions in work, training and volunteering.

The Government’s Kickstart scheme has provided a unique opportunity to continue this by offering placements across different teams at Great Places.

Currently, we are excited to be offering three new job roles for young people as part of the programme, including:

Not only is this an amazing opportunity for young people to Kickstart their careers, but there are also fantastic prospects of progression for those who are recruited through the programme.

During these difficult times, it is fantastic to be able to create opportunities for young people and help them in this important time of their careers.
