Therese Coffey – 2020 Comments on the Kickstart Scheme

The comments made by Therese Coffey, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, on 12 November 2020.

Every job created by the Kickstart Scheme is a potentially life-changing opportunity for a young person, and the heartening response of employers shows they recognise the huge value in giving youth a chance.

The pandemic has hit young people hard, but we are doing everything in our power to give them hope and the chance to find their place in the world of work.

Employers from all corners of the country have signed up, creating thousands of new and interesting jobs and helping us to level up as we build back better.
