The Government's Kickstart Scheme aims to create placements for 16-24 year olds, who are currently receiving Universal Credit to work 25 hours a week over a 6 month period. This post will be funded completely by the Government, this includes employer National Insurance contributions and automatic enrolment contributions. The National Minimum Wage rate will be paid to young people based on their age entitlement.
The great news is that this opportunity is open to all organisations within the voluntary and private sectors regardless of size. Kickstart is giving young people the opportunity to get their careers started, and gain valuable experience as part of that career journey.
CommUNITY Barnet has been appointed by the Government as a Gateway, this means we will act as an intermediary for companies and organisations to group together their placement requests and submit the required 30 placements per submission to the Government porthole.
