Tom Randall MP has welcomed the news of the success of the Kickstart scheme across Gedling borough.

The scheme has benefited 70 individuals directly in the borough.

Kickstart Scheme pays businesses to create high-quality jobs for 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit. The scheme gives young people the opportunity to find work, develop their skills, and get a crucial first step on the career ladder.

Mr Randall believes that the scheme gives young people in the borough the best possible start in the workplace.

He said: “The pandemic has been tough for young people, especially those looking for a job, and I want to ensure that no young person is left behind as Gedling continues its recovery.

“The Kickstart Scheme is helping deliver on that mission – getting 70 young people into work across Gedling – as part of the 100,000 helped nationwide. 

“This will give more young people the best possible start in the workplace – helping them get a high wage, high skilled job they will need for the future.”

Work and Pensions Secretary Thérèse Coffey said: “Kickstart employers in Gedling borough and up and down the country are giving young people the chance to get on the jobs ladder.

“Having hit the 100,000 milestone, we are now on the last lap and I encourage employers and young people to take advantage of this opportunity as we head towards the finish line of the great Kickstart scheme”.
