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 46 placements across an array of departments such as healthcare support, facilities, estates, catering, procurement, administration and more.

The scheme is a fantastic opportunity for young people aged 16 to 24 who are claiming Universal Credit to gain valuable workplace experience and we were thrilled to see our first cohort of kickstart employees join the Trust in June 2021.

Our next cohort is expected in September 2021.

The Kickstart Scheme is part of the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ and underlines the Trust’s commitment to create employment and training opportunities for young people within our local communities.

For further information please email Kickstart Scheme Co-ordinator Tony Armstrong at anthony.armstrong@dchft.nhs.uk

If you, or someone you know meets the criteria and would like more details on how to apply for a placement please ask them to speak to their DWP Work Coach as a matter of urgency.
