Scheme
– This fund enables employers from
across Great Britain to access funding to create new jobs for young people
who are claiming Universal Credit. On the 25 January 2021, it was reported
that 120,000 jobs have been created so far and that government is making it
even simpler for employers to join. From 3 February 2021, employers can now
apply directly to the Kickstart Scheme for any number of job
placements.  The Government has removed the previous threshold of 30 job
placements. Applicants can also choose to apply through a Kickstart gateway,
including those supporting sole traders.  The roles must be a minimum of
25 hours per week, for six months, paid at least the National Minimum Wage
for the employees’ age group and the roles should not require people to
undertake extensive training before they begin the job placement.
