Who does Kickstart help?

Anyone seeking work, or a change in career direction.

What happens when I visit ?

On your first visit you will need to register with us and we will take details of you, your work background and the reason you are visiting. This information is held confidentially but it enables us to help you with your needs.

You will then be handed over to one of our advisors who will help you to create a new and professional CV, or they will guide you through a job search process or just assist with an application form. If we create a CV for you we will send it to you by e-mail and give you a paper copy if that’s what you want. In response to the requirements of GDPR we will only retain that CV on our files for a maximum of 6 months after your last visit.

Each visit after the registration period lasts around 45 minutes … so please allow that amount of time.
