The Hull FC Community Foundation are giving local young people the chance to get back into work after the Covid-19 pandemic through the government’s Kickstart scheme, with several work places available across the club.
One of several clubs involved in the programme, the Black & Whites have several exciting opportunities available within the club, which offer six-month paid work placement roles to those aged between 16-24, and are claiming Universal Credit.
The Community Foundation are looking to recruit young people in a variety of areas across the club, including retail, administration, and the Foundation itself.
A full list of current vacancies can be found below:
- a sports assistant coach to work within the Hull FC Community Foundation,
- a customer service assistant to assist with administration/reception duties within the club’s main offices,
- three retail assistants to work within our fast-paced club retail stores.
The Kickstart project targets young people who have been hit especially hard by Covid-19 and focuses on giving them the best possible chance of getting a job.
Under the scheme, the RFL will be acting as a gateway provider – bringing together a network of Rugby League clubs, community organisations and other partners to provide a wealth of opportunities across the country for the out-of-work youngsters.
How To Apply
