UK wholesale network provider FullFibre has announced a new partnership with Kickstart. 

The government’s Kickstart Scheme was launched last year to provide funding to employers to create jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit. The scheme will support Full Fibre in creating vacancies for young people over a six-month placement, with 10 jobs open for applications across the company's four sites in Exeter, Ledbury, Telford, and Derby. 

Successful applicants will benefit from comprehensive support and training to help strengthen their skillsets and put them at an advantage when applying for full-time roles in the future. Alongside this, they will be paid 100 per cent of the National Living Wage for 25 hours-per-week for a total of six months, with the potential of a full-time position after this six-month period. 

Oliver Helm, CEO at FullFibre commented: ‘This is an incredible opportunity for younger people who are looking for hands-on experience in an ever-growing industry. There are various roles available that reflect the versatility required to steer a company like FullFibre. As well as offering experience in the field, we have openings across many of our departments. All candidates will be provided with high-quality training to strengthen their skillsets to set them up for a successful future. It’s always exciting to add some new members to the FullFibre family and we can't wait to see what the successful applicants bring to the table.’
