Harborough jobs can help you with apprenticeships and the Kickstart work experience scheme.

Apprenticeships are a great way to train up new and existing staff with skills specific to the needs of your organisation. There is government funding available for apprenticeships and an incentive of £3000 if you hire a new apprentice before 30 September 2021.

The Kickstart scheme will fund a placement for your businesses for 25 hours a week, for 6 months. This is a great way to support your business with an additional member of staff, and a brilliant opportunity to help a young person gain valuable work experience. 

You can view current Kickstart placements on our website hereand take a look at our Jobs Support page here

Preparing for work starts in schools. Local schools and colleges are always on the lookout for local employers to support their career programmes. This can include career talks, mock interviews, enterprise days, work experience and more. You can make a difference to the future workforce.
