Talent Match South East – Promoting self employment to unemployed young people in Kent

Talent Match South East – Medway, Swale, Thanet and DoverTalent Match South East - Self Employment in Kent

Talent Match South East is targeting young people who are furthest from the jobs market, including those who are completely outside of the benefits, work and training system. Some may face severe barriers to gaining the skills they need to get into work.

Kent Foundation will be working with young people aged 18 to 24, who are in the target group, and considering becoming self-employed in Kent. The Foundation will deliver a campaign in each of the targeted areas to raise awareness of self-employment using social media and roadshows to meet and engage with young people. This will be followed by exploratory business start-up workshops designed to enhance young people’s skills, knowledge, confidence and self-esteem in order to start their own business.

Ongoing 1-2-1 business support is available through trained Kent Foundation Business Mentors who will listen, engage and respond in order to guide business decision making.

If you are a young person interested in receiving support offered by this project call us for a chat on 03000 421163 or email us 🙂

Please can someone arrange a visit to Kent Enterprise Trust on 01227 844471 as we are a 30 year old charity helping unemployed in Kent and we have a new co-working space available for start ups.
