Kickstart Scheme


The Kickstart scheme is a £2 billion fund designed to create hundreds of thousands of high quality, 6-month work placements for young people aged 16-24, who are claiming Universal Credit.


The Government will fund 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours per week, plus associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrollment contributions.  £1,500 is also available per placement to support and train the young person.


Sussex Chamber is acting as an intermediary and will collate business placements. We can help guide you through the process and advise on the next steps. 


Please Note

Any business can apply. There is no requirement to be a Sussex Chamber member. The guidance is still being updated by Department for Work and Pensions, and therefore the criteria requirements may change.
