The Royal Mint to help young people get a ‘Kickstart’ in their careers
The Royal Mint has become one of the first companies to sign up to the Government’s new ‘Kickstart’ scheme – providing work placements for 16 -24 year olds.
The Royal Mint is one of the largest employers in Wales, and is world leader in the design and production of precious metals, currency and commemorative coins. As part of Kickstart, The Royal Mint is set to offer a variety of six month placements which will offer practical experience and coaching to help young people develop their careers.
Candidates interested in the scheme need to contact their local job centre, who will check their eligibility and advise on placements in the local area.
Anne Jessopp, Chief Executive Officer for The Royal Mint said: “We are delighted to join the Government’s Kickstart scheme, and provide valuable work opportunities for 16 to 24 year olds. We recognise the importance of providing practical placements and mentorship for young and diverse talent - helping them gain experience and to develop their careers.
“As one of the largest employers in Wales, we have a wide variety of opportunities available in areas such as design, IT and marketing - and look forward to welcoming our first placements later this year.”
