WEBINAR Virtual Business Support – Government Kickstart Programme
The UK Government’s Kickstart scheme is aiming to create thousands of high-quality six-month work placements for young people aged 16 to 24 who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long term unemployment.
Under the scheme, the Government will cover 100 per cent of employment costs for 25 hours a week. This includes the employee’s salary at the appropriate minimum wage for their age, as well as National Insurance and pension contributions.
We are partnering with Adecco Working Ventures to allow small businesses to pool their vacancies allowing them to access the scheme no matter how many opportunities they can offer rather than the 30 needed to apply for the scheme directly.
This webinar will explain how the Scheme works and how you can apply.
Please join us for a Q&A session hosted by Sonali Parekh, FSB Policy Director. Our panel includes Jennifer Burn from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), and Mushall Khan from Adecco Working Ventures, our partnership Intermediary.
When you register to attend you can submit questions for our speakers in advance. FSB members and non-members are welcome to attend this free support session, and please share with your networks if you think they might be interested in attending.
