The Charityworks Kickstart Programme provides fantastic paid employment opportunities for young people looking to take their first steps into a career in the social change sector.
As part of the government’s Kickstart scheme, the roles are available to anybody aged 16-24 and in receipt of Universal Credit and young people can apply by visiting their local job centre and speaking to their Work Coach.
Charityworks is the UK-non-profit sector’s Kickstart gateway, and is collaborating with over 250 organisations as part of a collective effort to power up the sector with exceptional talent and make a real impact on youth unemployment.
As part of their paid job, successful applicants will also take part in a supported six-month development offer delivered by Charityworks. The programme will equip the young person with the connections, experiences, tools, and insight needed to succeed in their day job. It will also help them to build a peer community and the skills to transition well beyond their placement, developing long term careers in the non-profit sector.
