The Kickstart Scheme is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to boost their productivity while providing employment for a generation of talented young people who might otherwise be at risk of long term unemployment due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis.
The aim of the £2 billion fund is to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements aimed at those aged 16 to 24 who are on Universal Credit. So far, more than 360,000 applications have been received and processed nationally and the scheme is open to all employers, regardless of size and sector, until 31st December, 2021…….seems too good to be true? Well the good news is that we have already successfully supported 30 businesses through the process…….but how does it work and how easy is it to get onboard?
In this ‘lunch and learn’ style webinar, Clare Constable, Community Manager at Gatwick and Kickstart Scheme organiser, Andrew Sears from Shadow Founder and some of our successful applicants will explain the process, dispel the myths and show you how we can support you through the process…...and all this for free! We want this webinar to be very interactive, so there will be plenty of time to submit your queries and questions...........
