Kickstart Bundle: FMCG Training Course

About the course

Kickstart is a government programme aimed at helping young, at risk talent gain work experience. The scheme reimburses 100% of national minimum wage for companies to hire young talent for 6 month placements. 

In order to equip budding young professionals for the workplace, Young Foodies have created a tailored 6 month course to equip candidates with the core skills needed in the workplace, an introduction to the fast-paced FMCG space, and a thorough guide on how to get a foot in the door after the six month placement comes to an end.

While this course was primarily designed to help brands with candidates who have come through Young Foodies’ Kickstart gateway, YF have decided to offer this course to anyone on the cusp of starting their career journey.
