🔍New places to Kickstart your jobsearch

Whether you’re determined to get yourself ahead in a particular career, or looking for the first steps to learn what you are suited to, we know it can be hard to know where to start with jobs as a 16-24 year old.

However, there are also 100s of roles out there just for you, as part of the government’s Kickstart scheme – and Cambrian is here to help you find the job placement that is right for you. There are loads of ways you can find out about the Kickstart vacancies in your area.

If you’re 16-24 and in receipt of Universal Credit, then Kickstart schemes are designed for you – 6 month paid jobs with local employers that will help you earn while you learn.

So where do you start? Well first of all, head to the Jobs page on our site, which has dozens of Kickstart placements from across Wales!

But there are also other places to keep up to date on new Kickstart vacancies; there are weekly Kickstart Job fairs now running online, which are a great chance to get info on new jobs, a chance to speak to Kickstart employers and a summary of all available roles.
