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.
