By 19th August 2021General News, Staff

Success and career opportunity for young and unemployed Albert King that joined The Halo Tech Group Sales team less than 6 months ago.

Albert King, 18, joined The Halo Tech Group in April of 2021 following on from over a year of unemployment, and isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Albert joined The Halo Tech Groups sales team along with 6 other new starters as part of the governments Kickstart Scheme. He is now on track for an amazing things, such as a permanent position within our sales team based in Stoke, a pay rise and of course a massive pat on the back.

The Kickstart Scheme helps to provide job placements for young people on universal credits and at risk of long-term unemployment, through this scheme the young people are trained for sales with our experienced staff and managers as well as helping them develop lifelong skills to help them later in life. In the past 6 months The Halo Tech Group has hired 10 new starters all from an unemployed background, the Kickstart scheme has not only allowed 10 bright young people to find their way in the world, give them training, life experience and a career within sales, it has also opened up many opportunities for the business as a whole. Due to the success of the scheme Halo are working in partnership with the DWP to offer 10 further placements this year!


Albert is an amazing example of the benefits of the scheme, from a young, shy, unemployed and demotivated individual to a valued member of the sales team with multiple deals under his belt, who is also building his understanding of hosted phone systems and broadband. Albert at only 18 is now a professional and chatty sales agent, with a can-do attitude, positive mindset and sales skills that will enable him to work well within any sales job in the future, if not with us.


“Albert is a great example of why we chose to take part in the scheme. The Halo Tech Group has a tradition of giving young people an opportunity to grow and develop from within. Kickstart has helped us to continue this on a larger scale giving multiple young people the opportunity to do and be good.” Jonathan Walker CEO The Halo Tech Group
