EN:Able Communities is pleased with the progress of their Kickstart Gateway. It is already providing employment placement opportunities for young people in our region, supporting delivery of the £2bn government scheme’s aim to enable 250,000 young people on Universal Credit to gain work experience by December 2021 to support economic recovery.
There are 9 vacancies currently being advertised by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in a range of roles including stores assistant, admin support, communications assistant and procurement assistant.
Isla MacRae from Todmorden, who holds a masters degree in Sociology from Manchester University, had been volunteering and working part time in a supermarket, started a Kickstart placement doing digital marketing for Bishop Simeon Trust, a charity supporting vulnerable children in South Africa, at the end of April.
EN:Able Futures Social Value Advisor Caroline Lee delivered the first Employability session on Thursday 29 April.
