This is part of the government’s Plan for Jobs and aims to create hundreds and thousands of new, fully funded jobs across England, Scotland and Wales. The first placements are likely to be available from November.
Funding for each job placement will cover: 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week; the associated employer National Insurance contributions; and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
There will also be extra funding to support young people to build their experience and help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart Scheme funded job.
