Vocational Training, Adult Learning and Youth Engagement
The role you are hiring for has to be new and not a replacement for a current role.
The role must be a 6 month placement starting anytime from now up until December 2021.
The people you hire must be 16-24 years old and on Universal Credit.
You will receive each employee’s salary directly into your business account from the Kickstart Scheme. You can choose to top up their salary and extend employee working hours.
The Government covers 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week. In addition you will receive £1,500 for training and set up costs.
GradBay is here to help facilitate your application and offer advice and support in all areas concerning the Kickstart Scheme at no charge.
Receive up to £1,500 for each role.
Once you’ve paid your Kickstart employees wages, the DWP
will reimburse you within 2 weeks, and continue
this process on a monthly basis for the 6 month placement.
Once the funds are received from DWP,
full reimbursement will be provided.
1. Apply through our Secure Kickstart Gateway
It’s simple and straightforward. Fill out the quick sign up form, and a member of our team will contact you. Simply provide a few details about your business and the number of roles you plan to offer and leave the rest to us.
2. Relax and Wait For the Feedback
The DWP will check if your roles are compliant, and we will let you know once the funding is approved and granted. This process usually takes 4-6 weeks, but you’ll be regularly updated.
3. Recruit Your Resource
Conduct interviews and choose from a talented pool of applicants put forward by the Job Centre. Once you hire new members of staff,
funding instalments will be paid out monthly in arrears.
