Could you help to Kickstart a career?

Fully-funded support scheme – If you can offer a new role (a 6-month placement) to young people, the government will fully fund the positions, and give you an additional £1500 per person to cover any training and overheads

Working with us you can make offers of 6-month placements to employ between 1 and 29 young people. You can even go around again, and create second opportunities after 6 months for another young person in each placement role offered.
