There are a number of Kickstart Scheme opportunities within the City Council for young people in our district.

Kickstart jobs are funded by the Government to offer exciting opportunities for young people to gain valuable work experience. The opportunities offer valuable experience to build up a young person’s CV, boost future job prospects and help to start their career. The scheme is open to people aged 16-24 that are currently claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment.

Fake emails and text messages are a common tactic used by cyber criminals, their goal is often to convince you to click a link. Once clicked, you may be sent to a dodgy website which could download viruses onto your computer, or steal your passwords and personal information.

Online shopping scams cost shoppers £15.4 million over the Christmas period last year.
