The Kickstart Scheme was a 6 month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. It provided a fully funded opportunity for young people to gain experience of working in some of Britain’s most exciting companies.

As of March 1st 2022, the Kickstart Scheme is no longer operating referrals to employers. For all individuals currently on the scheme, your placement should continue for 6 months from your start-date. For queries related to your existing placement, please contact your Job Centre Plus Work Coach.
