Kickstart Scheme Launched

On Wednesday 1st September, the government’s Kickstart scheme started. The Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for young people.

Through the scheme, you will be able to access a large pool of young people with potential, ready for an opportunity.  Initially the scheme will prioritise young people aged between 16 and 24 who are ready for an opportunity and will be supported by their Jobcentre Plus work coach to enrol in the scheme.

If you are an employer looking to create job placements for young people, you can do so in two ways…

If you are looking to create opportunities for less than 30 placements, please register your interest via Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce
