Kickstarting Careers – Jack Price 

Customer Experience Executive Jack Price had previously studied for an undergraduate and master’s degree at the University of Birmingham for four years before finding the Kickstart Scheme. The DWP recommended the role with Robinson Manufacturing (RML), which he gladly accepted in November 2020. Working with RML, Jack received support and real-world insight into a professional environment. It emphasised the importance of his time management skills and showed him improvements he could make to support his future goals.  

Jack has found work very different from university, where he plans eventually to return with the hopes of getting a PhD on the representation of the Black Country in literature. He has a particular interest in the novels of Francis Brett Young and hopes to earn a PhD, give lectures and write a book. 

On his experience at RML, Jack had this to say: 

“It took me no more than three months to become a full-time employee and I feel that it was a compliment to have made it so soon into my placement and I think that it proved my contribution was worthy and this gave me a confidence boost!”
