Introducing The Kickstart Scheme
The government Kickstart Scheme is an excellent way for The AIM Group to continue to enhance employability and provide opportunities for local young people. AIM’s close relationships with job centres will allow us to effectively support businesses in utilising the government kickstart scheme, to introduce new and promising talent to the organisation.
We have established strong relationships with gateway organisations to be able to hire kickstarters in a seamless process for your organisation. Our extensive industry knowledge and experience means we are able to carry out a full recruitment process to find the best talent for your organisation.
How Does The Kickstart Scheme Work With Us?
We prepare every successful candidate for their first day at work, to ensure that their transition into your workplace is as easy as possible. All candidates will be enrolled in a 5-day training course (which can be branded to the employer) prior to starting their placement to help enhance their skills before starting work and they will receive a Level 1 certificate.
Once the applicant has started their placement, we are able to offer an additional six week, Level 2 qualification that can be completed at home in their home time. This guarantees that we can support them within their role, whilst also continuing their professional development (as required by the DWP Kickstarter Guidance).
Following on from a successful six-month work placement, AIM will support your company in assisting with a full-time offering, or we will support the candidate with their transition into a full-time role with another company. Our team will also support your organisation through this process, setting up the interviews on behalf of your organisation and guiding the candidate through the process of moving on to a full-time role (a key requirement of the DWP Guidance)
