The Department for Work and Pensions has launched a new programme to support young people in gaining valuable employment experience without any cost to the employer.
As an employer you can access:
100% funding for a role of 25 hours per week on minimum wage for 6 months
100% NI contributions
100% Pension contributions
Up to £1,500 per person hired through the scheme to cover onboarding, uniform and training costs
The scheme is designed to build the confidence, experience and skills of young people who are far from the job market, setting them up for future employment opportunities. Positions funded should be able to be supported for a six-month period , but there is no obligation to increase the placement hours, or offer employment after this placement.
EN:Able communities are a recognised Gateway for the Kickstart Programme. As a Gateway, EN:Able Communities can represent employers looking to employ less than 30 people through the scheme. Through our sister companies, we have the employment and training expertise to support your placement and ensure that it goes smoothly.
Should you have any questions about the Kickstart scheme, and how EN:Able Communities can help your business utilise it, please either complete the form on this page, or contact us at email@example.com.
