Did you know?

Did you know that if you can offer a new, 6-month placement to young people, the government will fully fund the position?

We has supported numerous employers all over the UK tap into this government funding by providing the necessary support, administration, and training.

As of 22 July 2021, 50,000 young people had started jobs, and as of 21 July, over 155,000 job placements had been approved and made available.

As a reminder, the Kickstart Scheme is a six-month work placement designed to get long-term unemployed young people onto the career ladder.

What is the Kickstart Scheme?

The Kickstart Scheme helps employers, by providing funding for them to create job placements for 16- to 24-year-olds.

The Government will pay:

100% of National Minimum Wage for 25 hours for a total of 6 months.
Associated employer NI contributions.
Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
Plus, a grant of £1,500 for setup and employability training and support costs for the Kickstarter. (employability training is a strict criterion and will be audited)

We make it easy to meet your requirements, by providing the Employability Training & Support in addition to helping you apply for a Kickstarter.

Did you know that the Kickstart Scheme is due to end in December 2021? This means the start date of new job placements can begin in March 2022 at the latest.
