The Kickstart Scheme is open for businesses now
The scheme will create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Funding available for each job will cover 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus the associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
To help smaller businesses, employers offering fewer than 30 placements will be asked to make a bid through an intermediary, who will then bid for 30 or more placements as a combined bid.
- If you are an employer looking to create job placements for young people, register your details HERE and a member of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority Team team will be in touch to help you with your application.

If you are applying for 30 or more job placements, you can apply directly HERE
