Kickstart Form – Employers

The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create new 6-month job placements for young people between 16 – 24 who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.

Funding will cover for each job placement:

  • 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week
  • the associated employer National Insurance contributions
  • employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions


To meet the requirements of the scheme:

  • The role would not exist without this funding
  • be paid from the grant money for the 25 hours per week on National Minimum Wage (employers can pay a higher wage and pay for more hours)
  • not replace existing or planned jobs
  • not cause existing employees or contractors to lose or reduce their employment
  • Can you provide employability support to young people?
  • Young people need support so that they are in a better position to find work in the future


Note: If you are not a limited company or are a registered charity, then you will need to submit 3 years accounts to for your application to be considered.
