Kickstart Scheme
The Kickstart Scheme is a 6-month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. It provides a fully-funded opportunity for you to get experience of working in one of the UK’s most exciting companies.

Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to people 16-24 years old, who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. 

If you have a work coach, they will talk to you about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you. The first jobs should be available from November 2020.

Talk to your work coach to find out more. If you don’t have a work coach, find out more about your career options >
