The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new 6-month job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:
Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.
A Kickstart Scheme application must be for a minimum of 30 job placements. If a single employer cannot provide this many job placements, they can find a Kickstart gateway, such as a local authority, charity or trade body for help applying.
This fantastic opportunity will help “young people get a great start in work” whilst your business will benefit from all the skills and knowledge young people bring with them. Check out the Kickstart Scheme here.
