The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit. 


Kickstart Scheme: As part of the government’s plan for Jobs, a new £2 billion Kickstart Scheme will create hundreds of thousands of new, fully subsidised jobs for young people across the country.
We are working with the Kickstart Scheme.
Here at Apprenticeship Recruitment Services, we are an active Kickstart Gateway. We support local employers in your area with Kickstart vacancies whilst providing all young people who are on the scheme with employability support, such as interview techniques, policy and procedure knowledge, and CV writing skills.

Can you offer a young person a job placement that will give them the experience they need?
If you can offer new, 6-month placements to young people, the government will fully fund the position. If you want further information, we hold monthly online information sessions for employers and for young people interested in the scheme. For more information on these sessions please contact

Are you or do you know someone eligible for this scheme?
6 Month Placements are open to those aged 16-24 who are currently on Universal Credit. The Kickstart Scheme is a 6-month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. It provides a fully funded opportunity for young people to gain experience or working in some of Britain’s most exciting companies. If you have a work coach, ask them about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you.
