Could you offer a young person a six month paid work experience, through the Government’s new Kickstart programme?
The new Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for those aged 16-24, claiming Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.
Lambeth Council are inviting employers with the potential to offer a high quality, six month work placement(s) for young Lambeth residents to be a part of our bid to the Government’s Kickstart scheme. To register your interest in being a placement host and to receive further information on the Council’s Kickstart proposals, please complete the following short questionnaire and one of the Opportunity Lambeth team will get in touch to discuss further.
Funding available for each job will cover 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus the associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
The Council are also holding a series of Kickstart webinars for employers, where you can find out more about the programme and put forward any questions that you may have about the scheme.
