The Kickstart Scheme is open for applications!
Aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are at risk of long term unemployment, the Scheme will provide high quality 6 month work placements.
Funding available for each job will cover 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus the associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
To help smaller businesses, employers offering fewer than 30 placements will be asked to make a bid through an intermediary, who will then bid for 30 or more placements as a combined bid.
