Over the next year we are pleased to be offering jobs across Shropshire, North Wales, Mid Wales and Cheshire as we join the Government’s Kickstart Scheme.

The scheme means those aged between 16 and 24 and who are receiving Universal Credit are able to apply for the 30 Kickstart positions across the charity.

Adverts have gone out to find suitable trainee sales assistants to join the teams at our shops.

Exciting times

Kickstart lead Jasmine Rogers said: “It’s really exciting for us to be able to be recruiting new staff across the charity.

“The Kickstart Scheme means we are able to offer six month paid placements to those 16 to 24-year-olds that are eligible.

“To begin with we are recruiting across our shops, but there will be other opportunities working within various departments at the hospices themselves a little later in the year.”

As well as working with us, Jasmine says that the successful applicants will gain valuable experience for the future.

“We have been working really hard to put together a comprehensive mentoring programme for those who join us,” said Jasmine.

“As well as knowing the work they are doing will have a real impact in their community, they will also gain meaningful work experience, learn new skills and improve the prospects of going on to find work once the placement has ended.”
