Two vacancies have been posted for by Campaign Collective under the new government-backed Kickstart scheme.
The programme creates new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Campaign Collective aims to provide a placement to two campaigners of the future who need, with the potential for more vacancies to be added if the initial placements are successful.
All kickstart trainees will be paid to work on live campaigns and receive advice on their future career with our experienced Members.
Successful applicants will also get help from the Public Relations and Communications Association to support their CV and interview preparation. Other training to develop their work-related skills, such as team work, organisation and communications will be part of the role.
Eligible candidates have to be referred through their local Job Centre. For more information, visit https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/kickstart-scheme.
Sarah Colombini, Founder Member of Campaign Collective, commented:
“We need to do all we can to support the next generation of campaigners – especially during these difficult economic times as we recover from the pandemic.
“The kickstart programme is a win-win for the young people who get fully-paid, real life work placements and businesses who can create new roles under the scheme.”
