Kickstart Scheme

July 9, 2020

The trainee kickstart scheme is a government plan to give young people a work opportunity whilst benefiting employers with the chance to experience fresh faces and fresh ideas from future applicants. The scheme is now open for applications but is currently not available in Northern Ireland.

The scheme will allow employers to give 16-24 year olds vital 6 month work placements. The government will then reimburse employers the relevant minimum wage, national insurance and pension contributions.

The scheme is also only available to those registered with a Companies House reference number or a Charity Commission number. Furthermore, for those who are a large employer looking at offering 30 or more job placements you have to apply through a nominated representative, such as the local authority or your local chamber of commerce.

This scheme seems to be very helpful for certain businesses and if you meet the requirements we highly suggest applying for it and helping to kickstart some new careers in your industries.

We are able to help you understand the scheme further and point you in the right direction.
