Kickstart - New Initiative to Support 16-24 Year Olds into Work

The Kickstart Scheme, a ground-breaking initiative to support 16-24 year olds into work, has been launched by the Government. You can find further information on how to sign up for the Scheme here.

All employers, irrespective of size and sector can offer any young person, claiming Universal Credit, a six-month work placement that will be paid for by government. The Kickstart Scheme will be delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions and will initially be open until December 2021, with the option of being extended.

‘Kickstart’ jobs must be new and of good quality. Government will pay 100% of the age-relevant National Minimum Wage, National Insurance and pension contributions for 25 hours a week.

Employers will be able to top up this wage, while the Government will also pay employers £1500 to set up support and training for people on a Kickstart placement, as well as helping pay for uniforms and other set up costs.

More information for employers on the scheme is available at GOV.UK on the link below.

There is a list of Gloucestershire companies acting as intermediaries here. So if you want to take on fewer than 30 kickstarters, you con contact companies like: Gloucestershire County Council and Adviza (who also run the National Careers Service contract locally).
