Here you will find information about the Kickstart project for careers in health and social care across Nottinghamshire.

What is Kickstart?

The Kickstart scheme is a 6 month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. It provides a fully funded opportunity for young people to gain experience of working in a local company or organisation. We have roles on offer in health and social care across Nottinghamshire. Plus if you take on a Kickstart placement you might be able to progress to a permanent job or an apprenticeship within the same company.
