Kickstart Job Placement Scheme


The government has introduced a new scheme called Kickstart that is investing £2billion to create new quality jobs for young people aged 16 to 25 who are at risk of becoming long term unemployed.

As part of the scheme an employer must be able to provide a minimum of 30 posts. We here at GISDA understands that this is not possible for all organisations like ourselves and small business to take part and employ a large number of young people. Therefor we are acting as representatives for a small group of employers.

The kickstart scheme provides fully funded job placement with local employers:

- 25 hours a week

- National Minimum Wage

- 6 month placement

- Training and support

Participants must be ages 16 to 24 and on universal credit to be eligible.

If you are a young person ages 16 to 24 who would like support to apply for a kickstart please get in touch.

If you are an employer that would like to become part of the scheme contact us.
