Oldham Athletic Community Trust are delighted to confirm we have hired two new employees on the Kickstart scheme!

Oldham Athletic Community trust are happy to introduce Reece Mundy (Media Assistant) and Janaid Hussain (Assistant Community Coach) will be joining our team through the Kickstart scheme.

The Kickstart Scheme offers six-month additional jobs for young people aged 16 to 24 years old who are currently claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. Funded by the Government, the scheme is in place to help young people aged between 16-24 develop transferable skills that are aimed at increasing their chances of sustained long-term employment.

Thousands of employers across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, have already applied for funding, which covers 100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months.

"I am delighted to welcome Reece and Janaid to the OACT team through the support of Governments Kickstart scheme. It is great to be able to support two young people on their career journey, as well as see how they can support our organisation during their time with us!"

Head of Community, Martin Vose

Reece will be supporting Media & Communications Executive Callum Irving promoting and raising awareness of the great community work we offer across Oldham. Janaid will be assisting our Community Engagement Lead Peter Boase in the delivery of sessions across Oldham. Such as our walking football and Premier League kicks.

"I very excited to start my role at Oldham Athletic Community Trust as I am big football fan. I have been following Oldham Athletic Community Trust team on social media for a while now and I have seen all the fantastic work they have been doing within Oldham and i can't wait to play my part in showcasing this through the work of the media team!"
