Vacancy Reference: Kickstart

The Isle of Wight Council is proud to be taking part in the new Kickstart Scheme. The scheme creates new job placements for 16 to 24-year olds who are on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.

Kickstart is more than just a job placement scheme. It is an opportunity for you explore possible new career paths, boost your confidence in a working environment and develop your transferable skills, making you an even better candidate for future employment than you already are.

All Kickstart roles at the Isle of Wight Council provide training and personal development, enabling you to take control of your own professional development. You’ll be given time and space by your mentors to ease into employment; so, whether this is your first job in a while, or your first job full stop, you won’t have to worry about feeling out of place.

You are only eligible to apply for a Kickstart role if you fit the all the following:
- You are aged 16 to 24 years old
- You are claiming Universal Credit
- You have been allocated at Work Coach with Jobcentre Plus

If you meet all three criteria, we would like to invite you to join us here at Team IWC where we have a wide range of Kickstart opportunities available including roles in Administration, Marketing, Care, Information Technology and Human Resources!
We will be adding even more opportunities as the scheme progresses, but right now we are taking applications for the following job titles in teams across the Isle of Wight Council:
- Domestic Support Worker
-  Activities Co-ordinator
- Maintenance Support Assistant
- Welfare Support Assistant
- Wightcare Administration Support
- Business Development Support Administrator
- Administrative Support
- Warehouse Support
- Trainee Asset Technician
- ICT Desktop Support Assistant
- ICT Desktop Support Service Desk Operator
- Support Worker
- Communications and Engagement Support
- Regeneration Project Support Officer
- HR Transactional Support Officer
- Project Co-ordination Assistant

If you want to know if you have what it takes to succeed, we will give you the opportunity to unleash your potential. Kickstart offers you the chance to discover your skills and strengths within in a fully supported environment.

You cannot apply directly with the Isle of Wight Council for any of these positions.
To be considered, you will need to speak with your Work Coach at Jobcentre Plus. Let them know you are interested in joining the council for your Kickstart placement and they will be able to give you the full job details and the reference number you will need to apply for your chosen position.

You will need to contact your Work Coach in the usual way, via email, phone or via your Universal Credit journal.

Best of luck, we look forward to reading your applications!
