About this Event

Hackney Council are pleased to invite young people in the borough who are looking for employment to online information sessions on the Kickstart Scheme in Hackney.

The Kickstart scheme offers a paid job with a local employer, for young people (16-24) on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. Hackney Council are working in partnership with the Job Centre Plus and local employers to create Kickstart jobs in a variety of sectors including Digital, Creative and Cultural, Health and Social Care, and Administration.

To find out more sign up here for an online information session hosted by Council officers from the Employment Pathways and Hackney Works Teams. Please note, We encourage young people to attend even if they are not currently on universal credit, this is not necessary for information sessions.

The session will cover the following:

What is Kickstart?

The Recruitment Process and Eligibility

Types of Placement on offer in Hackney

Support and Guidance Available to Participants


You will receive a meeting link to your email 24hrs before your chosen session starts.

Please arrive punctually, as we will get started on the hour so it is advisable to log on 5-10 minutes before the start time if you can.
