Sheffield Wednesday and its Community Programme (SWFCCP) have had a positive reception with the Kickstart programme, and we are aiming to continue that success through the addition of a number of positions that are available through the Kickstart scheme.

The Kickstart Scheme offers young people who have been hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic the chance to gain valuable work experience with six-month contracts that are subsidised by the government.

The positions that we are opening are:

  • Administrative Assistant 
  • Marketing and Design Assistant 
  • Premier League Kicks Coach
  • Disability Coach 
  • Extra-Curricular activities coach 
  • Employer Engagement Assistant 


All of the above positions are only available to people aged 16-24 and are on Universal Credit.

If you are interested in any of these positions, get in touch with your work coach who can help set you up with us at Sheffield Wednesday.
