Kickstart Scheme – supporting a young person into work

Kickstart Scheme – supporting a young person into work

Kickstart is a new Government initiative that provides funding to employers to create 6-month job placements for 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit.

Additional funding is available to employers to ensure the young person is fully supported and leaves the scheme prepared to enter work. You can find out more about the scheme here.

Employers who can offer 30 or more placements can apply directly to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).  Those unable to offer 30 placements can apply through a Kickstart gateway.

In September, we first highlighted this opportunity to our business community, since then we’ve been working with North Tyneside CouncilNorth Tyneside Council’s Employment and Skills Service and  to develop a Kickstart Gateway for businesses in North Tyneside.

The North of Tyne Combined Authority is our recommended Kickstart Gateway and we actively encourage you to register your interest with them here

We’ll working with the North of Tyne Combined Authority throughout the process to get the most exposure for our business community in North Tyneside supporting this Covid-19 economic recovery and to get your business PR benefits.

If you would like to chat to someone about creating a position and whether it is right for your business, please contact the Employment & Skills team on 0191 643 2111 or email [email protected].
