Kickstart Scheme

Fri 4 Sep 20

The government has introduced a new Kickstart Scheme in Great Britain, a £2 billion fund to create 6-month work placements aimed at those aged 16 to 24 who are on Universal Credit and are deemed to be at risk of long term unemployment.

  • The 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.
  • If you are an employer looking to create job placements for young people, see if you can apply for funding as part of the Kickstart Scheme.
  • If you are considering becoming a representative for a group of employers, check what information you need to provide to apply for a grant through the Kickstart Scheme.

Further guidance and promotional materials are available on gov.uk here.
