As part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, a new £2 billion Kickstart Scheme will create hundreds of thousands of new, fully subsidised jobs for young people across the country.
The 6 month placements are open to those aged 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit and at risk of long term unemployment. This scheme is likely to begin in November.
Fantastic news for our young people who will be one of the most significantly impacted by unemployment throughout and after the COVID pandemic.
