This opportunity is funded through DWP so applicants, therefore, must be in receipt of Universal Credit.

Skills required:

IT literate

Committed to picking up new software knowledge

Training to be provided:

All kickstarts have training included as part of the programme. This will be employability skills programmes and training for the role.

Personal Qualities:



Positive and energetic


Eye for detail

Things to consider:
You need to be 18-25 years old and on Universal Credit.
Future prospects:
The successful applicant will receive full training and have ongoing support. That will initially be in the office (socially distanced) but as soon as we feel confident that the person is up to speed they will work from home as per the current government directive. All equipment will be provided. The person will have access to a direct line manager via phone and email once they are working remotely. We will put the Kickstart employee on a Digital Skills for Business course as this training is pertinent to the roles we are delivering - cost £1,000 - as we are seeking to support the Kickstart scheme provision to move the successful candidates onto an apprenticeship with said provider at the end of the scheme. We will also provide 30 hours of training over the six months in all the software packages we use at Handsam Ltd, including communications systems, customer relationships software, our own in house software applications, customer services skills and negotiation and problem solving skills. These courses will ensure that by the end of the process these young people will have learned a range of skills all employers are looking for and will be able to demonstrate this on their CV, plus enable them to apply for the apprenticeship continuity position at Handsam Ltd. However, we will also provide detailed support ourselves on the software packages we use, use of telephone and email and all supported by direct access to a line manager within the organisation. As we are small this is very easy to deliver. A measurement of the success of the scheme will be the acceptance onto an apprenticeship of the person at the end of the Kickstart scheme. We will have formal review points every month with the person, which will allow for two-way feedback.
