“The launch of our ‘Kickstart Guide for Employers’ could not come at a more pivotal time, as we begin to see the impact of Covid on long term youth unemployment. We know that work experience and quality support are key ingredients to helping young people on their journey to work. Over 195,000 Kickstart Placements have been approved yet there is still much more to do.  Partnering with Movement to Work to provide best practice guidance for employers and a searchable database of approved quality organisations will be hugely valuable and join up in what is an already complex landscape”.  

LJ Rawlings, CEO, Youth Employment UK

“Movement to Work is delighted to be working in collaboration with Youth Employment UK to help more employers understand and activate Kickstart in their organisations. It can be hard to know where to begin when a new government-backed scheme is launched, hopefully our joint ‘Kickstart Guide for Employers’ will make things easier, and the pooling of our recommended partners into this new database will help employers to find fantastic support. Most importantly, we hope this work will lead to lots more quality opportunities for our young people – needed now more than ever” 

– Sam Olsen, CEO, Movement to Work
