She joins the team on an initial six month placement and will gain experience in a broad range of activities including event management, general administration and wellbeing initiatives.
“We are delighted to welcome Tilly to the team. Kickstart is an important programme supporting young people, helping them gain valuable skills for their future. Tilly has made a great start in her new role and is already gaining new skills which will improve her confidence and developer her CV” said Amanda Evans, General Manager.
