Ideal Kickstarters Begin Placements

Four young people given scaffolding industry experience

More than 430 work placements are being offered to young jobseekers across the UK through the NASC’s Kickstart gateway.

Four of these positions were created by Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd, which has recently filled these vacancies by welcoming Albert Richardson-Coleman, Marcus Collins, Leon Farry and Leonardo Jose Goncalves Candido to the team.

Nicola Lee, Company Secretary, said: “Although the process was slow at first we were soon inundated with enquiries and filled our four places with ease. All our candidates were keen to start work and were genuinely excited to join a scaffolding company, having not known how to get into the industry before.

“The Kickstart Scheme has made me realise there is a wealth of young individuals keen to enter the industry and Kickstart gives them an ideal opportunity – and scaffolding Companies, large or small – to benefit from. It would be great if this was more of a long-term plan or if something similar could be introduced to make our industry even more accessible for young people.”
