Kickstart scheme - employees

The Kickstart Scheme could provide you with a six month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. The scheme is designed to give you with the opportunity to get experience of working with one of the UK’s exciting companies.

Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme will be open to people 16-24 years old, who are claiming Universal Credit, and are at risk of long term unemployment. If you have a work coach they will talk to you about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you. The first jobs should be available from November.
