Trekstock commits to govt's Kickstart scheme with 2 roles

Trekstock has developed 2 roles in social media and fundraising (via Trekstock's Merch for Good project) to help young talent in Britain who are at risk of long-term unemployment, gain meaningful experience in fundraising and social media while supporting our small but mighty team on their upcoming projects across fundraising and programmes for young adults with cancer. 

To ensure young people have increased access to opportunities within the not for profit sector, 16 to 24 years olds who join us at Trekstock via the Kickstart scheme will gain wide experience across our small charity in fundraising, creative projects, planning and research, social media, merchandising and database operations. 

The placements are also supported along a 6-month learning and leadership development programme designed and delivered by Charityworks.

According to the latest figures from the House of Commons Library, the unemployment rate for 16 to 24 year olds was 12.9% in May-July 2021. The government’s £2bn Kickstart scheme, launched by chancellor Rishi Sunak, provides funding to employers to create six-month job placements for young people between the ages of 16 and 24, who currently claim Universal Credit. Employers can spread the job start dates up until 31 March 2022

How to apply

The Kickstart Scheme is open to people that are aged 16-24 that are currently claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. If this sounds like you and you'd like to apply for our Social Media Officer or Merch for Good Assistant roles, talk to your Work Coach about Kickstart and see if it could be right for you.
