Gateshead Council are looking to recruit Gateshead employers to the Kickstart government scheme.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:
- 100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months
- Associated employer National Insurance contributions
- Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions
Further funding is available for training and support so that young people on the scheme can get a job in the future.
Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.
