Plym Chamber CIC is a local gateway for the UK Government’s Kickstart scheme and we’re encouraging small businesses to get involved and help support young people with job placements in Plymouth. 

This is part of the government’s Plan for Jobs and aims to create hundreds and thousands of new, fully funded jobs across England, Scotland and Wales. The first placements are likely to be available from November.
