We are delighted to be working as an appointed Kickstart intermediary to operate the Kickstart program for SME businesses across the UK, and in conjunction with the UK Government.

About the scheme

The KICKSTART scheme is a £2billion government fund provided to create hundreds of thousands of high-quality jobs for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 during these uncertain times.

Funding available for each job will cover the relevant national minimum wage for 25 hours per week, plus the associated employer national insurance contributions and the employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.

There will also be funding available to support young people to develop new skills and help them to move in to sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart job. Through the scheme, you’ll be able to access a large talent pool of young people with potential, ready for an opportunity.
