Oliver Kemp is offered a permanent role at Citizen

We’re delighted to announce that Oliver Kemp has been offered a permanent position as Receptionist in our Facilities Team.

Oliver joined us in January on a work placement as part of the Government’s Kickstart Scheme.

The Kickstart scheme was introduced last year and provides funding to employers to create jobs for 16 to 24-year-olds on universal credit and who are at risk of long-term unemployment.

Oliver said: “I’m really happy to have been offered a permanent role. The Kickstart Scheme has given me a brilliant opportunity for me to gain work experience.

“I found out about my new role through Laura Folan, who was my line manager while I was working in the Learning and Development Team. Since my Kickstart Placement was coming to an end, I saw it as a perfect opportunity to learn more skills and secure a permanent role.”

Oliver said he is meeting more colleagues in his new role and enjoys helping out where he can.

He said: “It’s different to the role I had in Learning and Development. There is much more face-to-face interaction in this role, which I am really enjoying. I am also earning a little more with this role which is always a nice touch.

“I would especially like to thank Laura for giving me the opportunity on the Kickstart Placement and I’m grateful she told me about this role too!”

Our Senior Learning and Development Advisor Laura Folan added: “Oliver has been a fantastic addition to the Learning and Development Team and has made a great impression on both me and the team. He lives and breathes Citizen values and I’m so happy that he has secured a permanent position with us.

“The Kickstart Scheme is a brilliant way for young people to gain work experience and it’s been a great springboard for Oliver.

“I’m really happy that Oliver has been offered this permanent position. I know he’s going to do a fantastic job and will be an asset to the Facilities Team!”

Congratulations on your new role Oliver!
