Homebase kickstarts new jobs for young people in Nottingham
Homebase is introducing new jobs in Nottingham this summer as it creates 300 jobs for young people across the country as part of the government’s Kickstart Scheme.
Jobs in the Nottingham store will give local people aged 16 to 24 the chance to learn new skills, gain real life work experience and build confidence for their future careers.
One of Homebase Nottingham’s newest team members includes Saira Rehan-Rauf, who chose the scheme to gain experience in providing customer service.
She explained: “Before joining the scheme, I was unemployed for six months. I was studying part time at college doing a business and marketing course while looking for a job that would both help my family financially and support my ambitions for the future. Then I found the Kickstart scheme which was perfect for me as I knew it would allow more support and training than a normal job.”
Lasting six months, the scheme will include skill-based training ranging from stock management processes, digital sales, customer relationship management and health and safety processes, to problem-solving, organisation and teamwork. The team members will also receive support from The Princes Trust through its network of youth support workers, partners and mentors.
