FullFibre Ltd Creates 10 New Job Opportunities for 16-24 Year Olds

Broadband network builder FullFibre Limited, which aims to extend their gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network for UK ISPs to cover at least 500,000 premises by 2025 (here), has partnered up with the Kickstart Scheme to create 10 new job opportunities for 16-24 year-olds within their company.

The Kickstart Scheme will support FullFibre in creating vacancies for 16-24 year olds over a 6-month placement, with 10 jobs open for applications across the company’s 4 sites in Exeter, Ledbury, Telford, and Derby. Candidates must be claiming Universal Credit to be eligible for this scheme.

NOTE: FullFibre Limited, which recently hit a build rate of 15,000 premises per month, is backed by multi-billion-dollar infrastructure investment fund Basalt, which holds a majority interest in the company.

Apparently, successful applicants will receive “comprehensive support and training“, which will “strengthen their skillset and enable them to be in an advantageous position when applying for full-time roles in the future.” Alongside this, they’ll be paid 100% of the National Living Wage for 25 hours per week for a total of six months, with the potential of a full-time position after this six-month period.

Oliver Helm, CEO of FullFibre, said:

“This is an incredible opportunity for younger people who are looking for hands-on experience in an ever-growing industry. There are various roles available that reflect the versatility required to steer a company like FullFibre. As well as offering experience in the field, we have openings across many of our departments. All candidates will be provided with high-quality training to strengthen their skillsets to set them up for a successful future.

Also, it’s always exciting to add some new members to the FullFibre family and we can’t wait to see what the successful applicants bring to the table. I’ll urge anyone with an interest to apply, it’s a fantastic scheme which many have already benefitted from, so don’t pass up this opportunity.”

End.

    Vacancies for 16-24 year olds – age discrimination act
    Candidates must be claiming Universal Credit to be eligible for this scheme – no legency benefits allow – benefits discrimination act

  2. simon says:

    Given to claimants of Universal Credit constituted unlawful discrimination and treated ubfair to many legacy benefits with age discrimination act. Sick with this country!

      Not sure why some people are angry, it’s literally the government terms of the Kickstart scheme. From the gov.uk website:

      “The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.

      The funding covers: 100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months”.

      I appreciate it’s good to help young people move from welfare dependency, but you always have to notice that these will effectively be free staff for the company, during the 6 month trial period. I wish the staff luck and hope they find permanent work”

    Brilliant. Good for them, helping young people on benefits find employment.

    1. Buggerlugz says:

      Its all well and good offering opportunities to the young generations, the problem is, they do it because it makes them look good, costs them less being government funded, and they can pay them less and zero benefits than qualified people over 21 would get.

      Its same old, supporting the wealthy company bosses so they can pay their staff the least all whilst doing great for themselves.

    2. A_Builder says:

      I take it you have not tried to employ or train long term unemployed?

      Thought not.

      The gain to the employer is, a lot of the time, not great. The is usually a reason they were unemployed.

      Sadly we had to shut down our training as we were just training people for our competitors.

      Hope ut works well for both parties.

  4. GaryH says:

    Or on the upside, a company training 10 young people in a high demand field with the prospects of a skilled job with them or another operator if they turn out to be willing and capable. A training burden that they likely wouldn’t otherwise have taken on and the youngsters wouldn’t have been able to self fund.

    Everyone wants to hire skilled experienced staff, it’s hard to get a start in something vocational that has high potential for good earnings, easier to get funded to go to UNI and do some fanciful degree with no job prospects at the end of it.
