Kickstart is a £2 billion fund that is supporting the creation of high quality 6-month work placements aimed at those aged 16-24 who are on Universal Credit.  The roles Take Art has created aim to give young people the chance to build their confidence and skills in the creative workplace, and those employed will gain experience that will improve their chances of going on to find long-term, sustainable work within the creative industries.

The placement is 25 hours per week for six months starting in December 2021. 

To apply for the role, you need to be referred via your job coach at DWP and have an ID Introduction code, without this we will not be able to take your application any further. Once you have been referred you will need to send your CV to ruth@takeart.org

Due to Take Art’s rural location it is essential that you have access to your own means of transport to our office, we can offer help towards the cost of transport for the length of this placement if needed. 

We'd like to give you the opportunity to ask us any questions in advance of your application by emailing info@takeart.org or by calling the office on 01460 24945

Take Art is committed to equality and strives to create a diverse and inclusive working environment that reflects the diversity of the UK population. Our recruitment process is open to all but we particularly wish to encourage applicants from backgrounds that are currently under-represented within the sector as well as our organisation. We value the positive impact that increased diversity will bring to our organisation.
