Kickstart Success Story

Written on 16 March, 2022

Kickstart Success Story 1Launched as part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, Kickstart has helped young people in all corners of the country to develop new skills, build confidence, and get a crucial first foot on the career ladder.

In September 2021, our own Kickstarter, Brandon, began working with us as a Digital Communications Assistant in the Cyber Support Team at Education Data Hub.

Brandon’s skills and training lay within digital design and social media marketing and he was the perfect fit to help launch our brand new website and emerging social media platforms.  Heavily involved in the marketing strategy, and proving himself to be highly skilled in design and graphics, meant that Brandon was an integral part of our National launch event Cyber on a Shoestring’ in December 2021.

As the Kickstart placement came to an end in February, Brandon applied for and was successful in gaining a permanent position within Derbyshire County Council, putting all his experience and skills into good use.

Welcome Aboard Brandon!
