What is the Kickstart Scheme?

With the Kickstart Scheme, you can create six-month job placements for young people who are on Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. 

The job placements you create should encourage workers to develop skills and experience that will be useful to them in the jobs they undertake after the placement. It’s available to businesses in England, Scotland and Wales.

How does the Kickstart Scheme work?

Funding will cover 100 per cent of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week along with associated National Insurance contributions and the employer’s minimum automatic enrolment contributions. A sum of £1,500 per job is also available for set-up costs, support and training. You’ll get the funding if your application is successful. 

One thing you should know is that is that applications must be for a minimum of 30 placements. If you can’t offer this, you can partner with other organisations to reach the minimum.

If you’re the representative applying on behalf of a group of employers, you’ll receive £300 of funding to support you with the administrative costs of bringing these employees together. Though the scheme itself isn’t an apprenticeship, participants can move onto an apprenticeship at any time during or after their placement. Contact us today to find out more!

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said that hundreds of thousands of jobs could be created with the allocated money; he called on “every employer, big and small, national or local” to hire as many Kickstarters as possible.

Sunak first announced the Kickstart Scheme in his Summer Statement back in July. We explain what the scheme is, how it works and how to apply.

We offer you key benefits including: 

1) Kickstart Toolkit – containing job advert & description templates/guidance, kickstart contract template, risk assessment template.

2) Funded Training and Support – as part of the Kickstarter scheme you are required to provide all Kickstart placements with additional training and support to increase their employability skills (e.g. communication, teamworking, C.V writing etc). To facilitate this, the government are providing an additional £1500 per Kickstart placement which can fund this training in addition to other set up costs you incur such as the purchase of equipment etc. 

We can work with you to develop bespoke packages of training for your Kickstarters that no only develop their employability skills but also support their ability to carry out their role with yourselves.

How It Works

1) After we submit an application on your behalf, young people will be referred directly to you through their Jobcentre Plus work coach, and you can go through your usual recruitment processes to select a suitable candidate.

 2) We will transfer your initial setup payment when you are able to confirm the young person has started work, is enrolled on your payroll and is being paid through PAYE.
The Department for Work and Pensions will use information from HMRC to check that the young person is still employed and will pay remaining funding in arrears. The remaining funding payments towards wages and other associated contributions are made in arrears at month 2, 4 and 6 of the work placement.

3) The first participants set to take up Kickstart roles from November this year, with the scheme expected to remain open until December 2021 and the final cohort of six-month roles to end in Summer 2022.

Contact us today to find out how we can help make a successful claim for £1500.

Catering, Norwich 

" I contacted UK Liquidators because a friend of mine recommended them to me. My business was facing difficulties with HMRC and thought the best solution was to liquidate. I was going back and forth for a while, I received some great free advice. After a few weeks of consideration I contacted UK Liquidators again, and am pleased to say they handled the whole process for me. Very good professional service "


Fabric Manufacture, London

" I am not ashamed to say that I needed help and my business was navigating through some very difficult financial times. My corporation tax was overdue along with a small amount of VAT arrears. Liqudation was something I had thought long and hard about. Mark at UK Liqudators was fantastic and showed a degree of sympathy. Very helpful service that has allowed me to get back on track "
