What is the Kickstart Scheme?

The Kickstart Scheme is a six-month paid work placement with a local employer, funded by the Government. It provides a fully funded opportunity for young people to get paid work experience. The six-month placements will be for 25 hours per week at National Minimum Wage; the employer can choose to offer increased hours and/or an increased wage. 

The Kickstart Scheme announced by the Government expects to offer hundreds of thousands of job opportunities over the next few years. A £2 billion pot is available to fully fund positions with businesses across the UK, some of which will be with local businesses in Anglesey and Gwynedd.

Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to people 16-24 years old, in receipt of Universal Credit, and are at risk of long term unemployment. For more information on eligibility for Universal Credit, please visit https://www.gov.uk/universal-credit/eligibility

Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.
