Based in Brighouse, Pennine Pneumatic Services are an award-winning supplier of air compressors, vacuum pumps, nitrogen generators, chillers, HVAC equipment, pneumatics, pipework and assembly tools. As a conscientious employer, they are committed to promoting sustainable employment within their borough and were made aware of the Kickstart incentive through their relationship with the Employment Services Team at Halifax Opportunities Trust, who are a Gateway for the scheme. The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Facilitated by the Trust, Sam was introduced to PPS after being referred by his local Job Centre and after a successful interview was offered his very first job opportunity & although the role is for an initial 6 months it could lead to a long-term career with the company.
An important part of the scheme is to provide employability support for Sam to enable him to be successful in his new job – this support will be provided by the Employment Services team at the Trust in partnership with PPS colleagues.
Yvonne Gianoncelli, Senior Administrator at PPS says: “We at PPS are totally committed to developing young people, which is one of the reasons why we have applied for the kickstart scheme. Our team of professionals are always ready and willing to share knowledge and develop young people into the professionals of our future.”
Well done Sam!
