Company News January 01, 2021

Announced Summer 2020, the Kickstart Scheme offers thousands of job opportunities for 16-24-year-olds to help them take their first steps in their career. Here at Digital Visitor, we are excited to be part of such an important project and will be offering placements as part of the scheme.  

The Kickstart Scheme 

The Kickstart scheme offers paid 6-month placements to young people who are most at risk of future unemployment, bringing them into work and equipping them with the skills they’ll need to succeed. 

At Digital Visitor, we will be offering multiple placements to fit alongside our award-winning team to provide genuine, integrated work experience and give applicants the first steps of a career in digital marketing. Alongside direct experience, we are committed to helping develop our applicants’ softer skills and try and help them secure future opportunities via CV support and interview training.  

As experts in our field, we pride ourselves on our knowledge so we’re very happy to be part of the Kickstart scheme and be able to share our skills with those that have been hit particularly hard this year. Digital skills are incredibly important in today’s world and so we hope these placements would be a great opportunity for applicants to help launch their careers – Samantha Hickery-Cabreira , Head of Finance & HR, Digital Visitor
