My Place Trainee- Kickstart scheme

We firmly believe in the potential of young people to play a significant role in our national Covid recovery whilst recognising the challenge that the current climate brings for youth employment. The Charityworks Kickstart Scheme provides a real job and talent development programme to power up the early careers of young talent on Universal Credit.

Each role includes a supported 6-month development programme delivered by Charityworks. The programme will equip you with the connections, experiences, tools and insight needed to succeed at work, help you to build a peer community of fellows and give you the skills to transition well beyond the placement, and develop long term careers in the non-profit sector.

Myplace is an established Green Wellbeing programme, funded by the Green Recovery Challenge Fund and the European Social Fund, and is delivered by Lancashire Wildlife Trust in Partnership with Lancashire Care Foundation Trust. Although based from Brockholes our Myplace team works at sites across Lancashire, and Greater Manchester providing opportunities for participants to get hands on with nature, look after their wellbeing and help to improve their local green spaces for people and wildlife alike.

As part of this role you will support our team of Project Officer in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of green space activities. Alongside this you will also support the personal development opportunities for participants on their journey to improving their wellbeing, employability and increased confidence. You will also take an active role in working within local communities, ensuring that we reach people within communities who might not ordinarily connect with their local nature.
