In December 2020, we matched 15 candidates from the Government’s Kickstart Scheme, a programme offering funding for employers to create job placements for 16- to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit, to roles that allowed them to shine. Harnessing their individual talents and drive, we deployed the candidates to Covid-19 testing sites across London, Liverpool and Sheffield, with three individuals joining from the Springboard charity programme.
Since starting the project, all candidates have continued working across testing sites, and are excited for the opportunity to integrate into the wider Compass UK and Ireland business over the next few months.
“Really hard to say where Ben could improve in this role as he is a good professional member of the team at the test centre. He is reliable and follows instructions well, so can be trusted to deliver what is required.” Nathan – Site Manager at Speke LTS
