Your Consortium are specialists in supporting small businesses and charities to engage with government funded projects and we pride ourselves on our friendly and supportive approach. We’ve had a lot interest in our new partnership and are excited to speak to other businesses and charities who want to make a difference in the lives of young people.”

Sam Alexander, CEO of Your Consortium

More than 120,000 jobs for 16 to 24 year olds have now been created through the government’s flagship Kickstart Scheme, as ministers have urged more employers to get involved.

What an opportunity this scheme and Your Consortium are partnering to provide.  Alongside qualifications, when recruiting employers wants to see broad experience of life and of work.  This is a new route to gaining that experience while earning a salary.  I am grateful to Your Consortium for taking this scheme forward locally and would urge businesses to sign up to work in partnership with them and benefit from the hard work and application of a new, young employee and to help that employee grow and develop.”

Andrew Jones, MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough
