The KickStart Scheme – How to apply for funding

The KickStart Scheme - How to Apply for Funding

If you are an employer looking to create jobs for young people, you can apply for funding as part of the Kickstart Scheme
.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16 to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long-term unemployment.

Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:

•    100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage) depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months
•    Associated employer NI contributions
•    Minimum automatic enrolment pension contributions

Employers can spread the job start dates up until 31 December 2021. You will get funding until 30 June 2022 if a young person starts their job on 31 December 2021.

Further funding is available to provide support so that young people on the scheme can get a job in the future.

There is now a link to a video walk through of the online application in the ‘How to apply – Apply online’ section.
