ECCH to give local young people’s careers a “kick start”

East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) is offering job placements for local young people, as part of a government initiative to help them into employment following the pandemic.

The Kickstart scheme is designed for 16-24 year olds in receipt of Universal Credit and aims to match them to paid work experience placements with local employers so they can gain skills, boost confidence and gain the tools needed to enter employment. 

We’re looking to recruit 18 individuals to complete a 6-month paid employment programme with us. Those selected will be supervised by NHS professionals in order to help build a career in the NHS, with both clinical and non-clinical roles ranging from Assistant Rehabilitation Support Worker, to Junior IT Assistant and Referral Coordinator.

ECCH Chief Executive Ian Hutchison said, “We understand that the pandemic has had a particularly negative impact on young people, with many ending up out of work or with less certainty around their future plans. We’re delighted to be able to offer some of those young people real opportunities to learn more about the roles available within the NHS and gain the tools to build a successful career.”

Placements will be located across Great Yarmouth and Waveney. Applicants must be aged between 16-24 years old, currently not in education, employment or training and must be claiming Universal Credit.
