Maddie and Bekah were recruited as part of the Government’s Kickstart scheme which aims to provide unemployed young people valuable work experience through a 25 hours per week 6-month placement.  Alongside practical experience they will take part in 12 training sessions with Adult Education and have the support of a dedicated mentor. 

All three roles have been designed to provide a wide range of experience and will equip the young people with work-based skills and tools to develop their future careers. 

Emily Cambridge, Head of Human Resources & Inclusion at GCH commented “We are really pleased to offer opportunities for young people. We understand that it is an important time to support them as we emerge from the Pandemic in different and uncertain circumstances. GCH has a strong track record of providing experience in a wide range of areas and kickstarting careers and we look forward to supporting Sam, Maddie and Bekah to develop.” 

Office Administrator Trainee Maddie says “I am very grateful for this opportunity and thrilled to be a part of the GCH team. I am excited to see what the future holds.” 

Business Administration Apprentice Sam adds “I am looking forward to working at GCH to develop my skills and gain professional experience with a company whose roots are in the community.” 

GCH will offer three more placements under the Kickstart scheme in October. Applicants must be aged between 16 – 24, claiming Universal Credit and referred by their Job Coach. Please follow Gloucester City Homes on Facebook or Twitter for updates.
