ACS are delighted to be getting involved and supporting the Government initiative scheme, Kickstart.
We have now started 4 young people on a 6 month work programme all based in the East and we’ll be starting another 2 from this approval and up to another 14 over the next couple of months.
The scheme aims to tackle the rising issue of youth unemployment by providing funding to take on unemployed young people aged between 16 and 24.
John Irving, ACS Contracts Manager says “Kickstart has some real potential giving under 25s a chance to get into the work place. We’re hoping to have 20 youngsters in place by October. With everything that’s happening at the moment, this is one of the key ways we, as a responsible company, can help make a difference to our communities. It’s a real opportunity for us and the Kickstarters. We look forward to welcoming them all on board.”
