The FinTech Alliance community has joined together in support of the UK Government’s Kickstart programme.
Kickstart is aimed at getting those on Universal Credit ages 1624 back to work.
This is in response to the impact of the Covid19 pandemic and is subsidised by the Government.
FinTech Alliance sees it as an important stepping stone to help young people develop skills to work in the FinTech sector.
What does this mean?
While the Kickstart programme will be vital in getting young people back to work as well as providing skills and talent for various industries, many FinTechs are unable to take on the minimum of 30 staff required to take part in the scheme.
That’s why FinTech Alliance is organising a consortium so companies within its community can open up spaces to as many or as few young people as they need.
FinTech Alliance CEO Phil Vilder commented:
“At FinTech Alliance, we are fully committed to supporting a sector that identifies and attracts talent from all of society. With that in mind we are looking to create new opportunities in FinTech using the Kickstart programme and will be creating a cohort of FinTechs to provide roles for these individuals.”
Many companies within FinTech Alliance have already expressed their interest in the scheme, but there is still time to get involved, so for more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
