Eastbourne working together

Kickstart Eastbourne is a service for SMEs in Eastbourne and the surrounding area that want to get involved in the Kickstart Scheme but are unable to offer 30+ kickstart placements directly.

To support the local business community, Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce and Crossland and Dudson Training have joined forces to act as an Intermediary on your behalf so that you can access the Kickstart Scheme.

This involves:

+ Bringing businesses together to create the minimum 30 Kickstart placements per application and providing advice and guidance along the way.

+ Liaising with Jobcentre Plus services on your behalf to identify the right young people for interview.

+ Providing and managing tailored wraparound support for the young people you select to work with you.

To get involved with Kickstart Eastbourne you do not need to be a member of Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce or be a client of Crossland and Dudson Training.

The programme is open to all businesses; your eligibility for the scheme will be checked once you pledge your support.
