The Kickstart scheme is now open. If you have fewer than 30 Kickstart roles, you’ll need to apply via an official, DWP recognised Gateway (that’s us at Liberty Resourcing!). We will handle all aspects of your Kickstart application at no cost to your business.
What is the Kickstart Scheme?
The Kickstart scheme is designed to help young people (16-24) who are currently on universal credit to develop the skills and experience they need to find work, through valuable 6 month job placements.
Via the scheme, the Government is funding 100% of every placement and offering grants of £1,500 per role to cover the cost of training and employability support. The Government will also cover all necessary employer national insurance and pension contributions meaning the schemes are 100% cost neutral to employers.
The scheme is run by the DWP and the UK wide Jobcentres who will help place candidates into Kickstarter roles. The scheme is open to any employer that can offer more than 30 job roles or
to any employer who applies via an official Government Gateway, like us.
If you are an employer and interested in this scheme, please call us on 0207 183 6024
and we will talk you through the DWP requirements and initiate and manage the process for you.
