What is the Kickstart scheme?
The Kickstart scheme is designed to help young people (16-24) who are currently on universal credit to develop the skills and experience they need to find work, through valuable 6 month job placements.
Via the scheme, the Government is funding 100% of every placement and the Government will also cover all necessary employer national insurance and pension contributions meaning the schemes are 100% cost neutral to employers.
The scheme is run by the DWP and Jobcentre who will help place candidates in Kickstarter roles. The scheme is open to any employer that can offer more than 30 job roles OR to any employer who applies via an approved Government Gateway, like us.
For the employers and young people on placements, LSS Group will ensure quality of support throughout the process and advise on those valuable next steps of re-entering paid, full time employment with comprehensive wrap-around support.
