At PPS we are passionate about supporting young people, and offering opportunities to help provide sustainable employment for the younger generation.
We were recently made aware of the Kickstart incentive through their relationship with the Employment Services Team at Halifax Opportunities Trust, who are a Gateway for the scheme. The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16- to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long-term unemployment.
After partnering with Kickstart, we were able to offer Sam his first job opportunity, with the potential of a long-term career within PPS. Sam has recently started working in our pipework and installations department and continues to receive excellent employability support, enabling him to be successful in his new role. This support is provided by Halifax Opportunities Trust in partnership with the PPS team.
Yvonne Gianoncelli, Senior Administrator at PPS says: “We at PPS are totally committed to developing young people, which is one of the reasons why we have applied for the kickstart scheme. Our team of professionals are always ready and willing to share knowledge and develop young people into the professionals of our future.”
