Get a Head Start with…Kickstart

Help us build the future of our young people, by becoming a Kickstart employer. Support our 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit back in to work and provide them with the life and work experience they need to take that first step in to their career journey. This is your opportunity to recruit fresh new talent and ideas in to your business and grow your future workforce, fully subsidised for 6 months.

Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:
- 100% of the National Minimum Wage (or National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months.
- Associated employer National Insurance contributions
- Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.


Kickstart is a wonderful opportunity for your business, big or small. It’s a real chance to think a little differently and could even support your future growth plans.
Further funding is available for training and development needs, to support the young person in to sustainable employment.
You no longer need a minimum of 30 job placements to apply directly for a grant.
You can now apply for a Kickstart scheme grant by either:
- Applying online yourself
- Getting help from a Kickstart gateway who is already working with the Kickstart scheme.
