Be A Part of the DWP Kickstart Scheme

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/kickstart-scheme

The Kickstart Scheme, a £2 billion fund to create thousands of high quality 6 month work placements for young people launched by the Government as part of the Plan for Jobs.

Job placements will support participants to gain the experience they need to find work after completing the scheme. Funding is available for 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus associated employer National Insurance contributions. In addition, a payment of £1,500 per person is available to support the employer with associated costs and help those young people to develop new skills.

As you are applying for less than 30 job placements, you must apply through an Employer Representative. They can submit an application on your behalf, using other employers to create 30 or more job placements in one application. The representative will be responsible for administering the grant and wage costs and may be involved in providing the necessary support to the young people on placement.

DWP has a list of Employer Representatives who have expressed an interest in becoming an intermediary. They would still have to submit an application to become an approved intermediary but you are able to register your Kickstart vacancies with them and they would be included in the application. It is up to you as the employer to choose the one that suits your needs best and DWP are not in a position to recommend any representatives.
