The Kickstart scheme, which was announced in September, provides funding for six-month job placements for 16 to 24-year-olds who are at risk of long-term unemployment.
The funding covers 100 per cent of the national minimum wage for the young person for 25 hours a week for six months, as well as National Insurance and pension contributions, and comes with a £1,500 grant to cover setup and training costs. Employers looking to participate in the scheme must offer a minimum of 30 job placements, but smaller organisations can participate through larger organisations or through coalitions of organisations.
TCCA has a bid to lead a consortium application under the kickstart scheme. The bid has been accepted and TCCA is working with the DWP in in the recruitment of 36 jobs, with six partners.
If any one is between 16-25 on universal credit and not in employment, then please feel free to call us on 02088261080 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
