As a Trust we are committed to creating employment and training opportunities for young people within our local communities.
We are therefore proud to be supporting the Government’s Kickstart Scheme and offering placements across an array of departments.
The scheme is a fantastic opportunity for young people aged 16 to 24 who are claiming Universal Credit to gain valuable workplace experience.
Our first cohort of Kickstart trainees completed their six-month placement with the Trust in December 2021. We are very pleased to announce that more than 90% of the first cohort are now in full or part-time employment with Team DCH.
We have several exciting new roles available for eligible young people to start their employment journey:
- Healthcare Therapy Support Worker
- Capital Projects Support Worker
- Accounts Payable
- Pharmacy Administration Support Worker
- Administrative Assistant – Haemodialysis
- Patient Access Support Worker
- Healthcare Records Scanning Clerk
- Catering Support Worker
All referrals must be made through a Job Centre Plus Work Coach but for more information or an informal discussion please contact DCH Kickstart Scheme Co-ordinator Tony Armstrong.
