REC supports youth employment with Kickstart Scheme

(2 minutes to read)

REC: ‘The Kickstart scheme uses temporary work as a stepping-stone to get young people into employment – an approach the REC knows to work’.

A successful bid by the REC to the government’s Kickstart scheme means that new job placements will be created in the recruitment industry for young people.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has been appointed as a ‘gateway organisation’ for a number of its members by the Department for Work and Pensions.

They will provide training and job placements in their businesses for 16 to 24-year-olds currently on Universal Credit.

Kate Shoesmith, Deputy CEO of the REC, commented, “Covid-19 is having a profound impact on jobs and young people entering the labour market are among the worst affected. We know from experience that the effect of unemployment on young people’s future career and earnings can be catastrophic.”

“So I am proud that the REC was quick off the mark in making this bid and is able to facilitate our members in creating jobs and training opportunities for young people currently on Universal Credit. We are looking forward to supporting our members to make their placements a success and showing what good recruitment is about.

“The Kickstart scheme uses temporary work as a stepping-stone to get young people into employment – an approach the REC knows to work. It’s great to see so many excellent recruiters stepping up to help. There’s room for more so any of our members who wish to get involved should get in touch.”
