On 2 September, the government officially launched the Kickstart Scheme which covers England, Scotland, and Wales (with funding made available for a similar scheme in Northern Ireland).
For each Kickstart job, the government will cover the cost of 25 hours’ a week at the relevant National Minimum Wage in addition to pension and National Insurance contributions. Employers will also receive £1,500 per placement for wraparound support for the young person, including personal development and employability skills.
