Rathbone Amateur Boxing Club has teamed up with The Boxing House Ltd (trading as Rathbone Boxing Club) to offer a number of positions on the Government’s Kickstart Scheme with the addition of training, equipment and support made possible by grants from Camden Giving and St Giles and St George.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak visited the gym last week to speak about the opportunities the government is offering through the scheme he launched to get people under the age of 24 back into work. Kickstart is a job placement scheme for 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit that provides 25 hours a week paid employment for six months.
Rathbone Boxing Club, a growing business, is looking for motivated young people to fill positions such as front of house, web design, social media, business development and branding. There are also two vacancies within the non-profit Amateur Club where successful candidates will have the opportunity to identify social issues, source funding and manage their own community projects. While everyone eligible is encouraged to apply, those living in Camden will also receive mentoring, funding for relevant qualifications and equipment and CV workshop sessions to better equip them in the world of work when their placement finishes.
Applications must be through the Department of Work and Pensions and jobs available can be found by searching ‘The Boxing House, W1T 1NJ’.
Camden residents that do not meet Kickstart eligibility criteria may apply for a three month unpaid work placement receiving the additional support made possible by funding from Camden Giving. In this case a CV and covering letter should be sent to RABC@rathboneboxingclub.com.
