Kickstart is offering six-month work placement job roles to young people aged 16 to 24-years-old who are claiming Universal Credit – providing youngsters with opportunities to build their skills in the workplace and developing their employability skills.
Fleetwood Town Community Trust is one of 65 EFL clubs taking part in the scheme, which has created tens of thousands of job roles for young people, working in a variety of positions across industries such as hospitality, sport and leisure and administration.
The Trust has their first Kickstart recruit, Freddie Moyle, who will be a Youth Support Worker, support the organization in the delivery of youth provision across the borough, enhancing projects such as TrySport, PL Kicks and PAN Ability Football. Throughout the next six months with the Trust he will develop both personal and professional skills aimed to give him the tools and resources to gain future employment.
NCS Manager, John Hartley stated, “We are thrilled to have Freddie on board as part of the government’s Kickstart scheme. This initiative will support Freddie in his development into long term employment. He will join our team of experienced staff delivering physical activity and wellbeing activities across Wyre, as local residents begin to re-engage in face to face projects as lockdown restrictions ease.”
“Freddie recently completed the Trusts flagship Employability programme, Find Your Future in partnership with Regenda Housing Group. Supported by Trust staff and More Positive Together mentor, he has developed his key employability skills, which enabled Freddie interviewing for the role of Youth Support Worker. The skills developed and the experiences he has previously gained led to him being successful for this role.”
“He will also join our team of NCS staff this summer, on both a three and a two week programme, empowering young people aged 15-17 years old in developing crucial skills through team based challenges on their journey into attending Further Education and adult life.”
Youth Support Worker, Freddie, added, “I applied for this role because I am passionate about seeing the growth and development within young people and children. I also wanted to be part of a team that brings positive change and support to the local community.
“Whilst working for FTFC CT I hope to grow and develop my skills as a youth worker, and learn more about my home town and ways to support the local community.”
