Kickstart Scheme

We have decided to start a massive campaign for securing more funds to our charity Delighted Mankind. For implementing a successful and massive campaign, we are going to bring 30 Events & Fundraising Assistant in our team. This is a new role in our charity and will be completely funded by the Kickstart Scheme grant and would not exist without this funding. This would be paid from the grant money for the 25 hours per week on National Minimum Wage. This role would not replace existing or planned vacancies and would not cause existing employees or contractors to lose or reduce their employment.

By this campaign, we are helping young people who are at risk of being unemployed in the long term. We shall help young people get basic work skills which include:

  • attendance
  • timekeeping
  • teamwork
  • communication
  • travelling to work

We shall also help young people in:

  • CV and interviews
  • looking for long term work

We shall provide offer support so they are employable by other organisations after finishing the 6 months’ term with us.

We are in contract with HR and Health & Safety Experts- Peninsula (https://www.peninsulagrouplimited.com).

How will you help develop the young person’s teamwork and communication skills?

We use Slack for maintaining teamwork and communication. Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate. Slack is a proprietary business communication platform developed by American software company Slack Technologies and owned by Salesforce from 2021. Slack offers many IRC-style features, including persistent chat rooms organized by topic, private groups, and direct messaging.
