Kickstart Employee - Jakob Morgan

The Kickstart Scheme is a government funded scheme to create new job placements for 16-24 year olds that are on Universal Credit.  The 6-month placement aims to support the participant to develop the skills and experience they need to find work after completing the scheme. 

SMTL participated in this scheme and we welcomed Jakob Morgan to the team back in March 2022 as an Administrative Assistant to help the backlog of scanning in the Office.  SMTL are currently in the process of going electronic and are slowly going through all hardcopies of projects and scanning them into a central database.  This is no small task and Jakob has proved a real asset to the team in getting way ahead of where our busy admin team could have got to at this point. 

Jakob has written a message about himself as an introduction to get to know him a little bit more. 

“Hi, I’m Jakob. I’ve been working at SMTL for about 6 months at the time of writing, initially coming on-board via the Kickstart scheme. I completed a bachelor's degree in Physics, and a master's degree in Medical Radiation Physics at Swansea University. My initial hope for the scheme was for it to provide me with experience, and potentially serve as an entry point for a career within the NHS. It has more than delivered on this, even enabling me to gain exposure to other areas of the trust, such as Velindre Cancer Centre. I’ve loved my time at the lab so far and look forward to this continuing!”

Jakob has now joined us through the Bank and his job role has altered to meet the needs of the service to Lab Assistant and will be assisting the Admin Office, QA and Physical Department in the future.
