The Kickstart Scheme allows employers to apply for funding to create new placements for young people who are on Universal Tax Credit and at risk of long term unemployment for 6 months fully funded with an additional £1,500 setup costs per placement.
To apply directly you need to create a minimum of 30 job placements. However, if you are unable to do this, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have selected certain organizations to represent employers to apply for funding on their behalf. We at Kickstart Partners have been selected as a Kickstart Gateway Representative by the DWP.
We will help you complete the application, apply for funding and administer the funding on your behalf. As a Kickstart Gateway Representative, you know that you are in safe hands.
