There will also be support available to give people new skills and to help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart job.

Through the scheme, you’ll be able to access a large pool of young people with potential, ready for an opportunity and eager to support your recovery from Covid-19.

How we can help?

It’s the all-round package companies have come to expect from us. We’ll talk with firms to ensure they understand what is involved from the Kickstart programme and our expert advisers will identify potential jobs the young people can fulfil.

From there, we’ll support you to interview and find the right person and then, depending on the role, we can offer three tailor-made programmes that will be delivered one-day per week at one of our three world class technical academies.

What you need to know about the Kickstart scheme

We will initially prioritise young people aged between 16 and 24-year-olds who are ready for an opportunity and will be supported by a Jobcentre Plus work coach to enrol in the scheme.

The job placements created with Kickstart funding must be new jobs.

They must not:
■ Replace existing or planned vacancies
■ Cause existing employees or contractors to lose or reduce their employment

The roles must be:
■ A minimum of 25 hours per week, for 6 months
■ Paid at least the National Minimum Wage for their age group
■ Should not require people to undertake extensive training before they begin the job placement

All learners will receive support to look for long-term work and prepare them with the skills for this by being given:
■ Support with CV and interview preparation
■ Training to develop their skills, such as teamwork, organisation and communications as part of the role
