The government has introduced a new Kickstart Scheme in Great Britain. It is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high-quality 6-month work placements aimed at those aged 16 to 24 who are on Universal Credit and deemed to be at risk of long-term unemployment. 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 enrollment contributions.
- If you are an employer looking to create job placements for young people, check 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
Surrey Chambers of Commerce will be taking on the role of intermediary for the Kickstart scheme. It is funded by the government but the grant has to be claimed for at least 30 placements. As an intermediary, Surrey Chambers will be pulling groups of 30 businesses together to bid for their funding.
