About Kickstart

The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high-quality 6-month work placements for young people aged 16-24 who are ready for an opportunity and will be supported by their Jobcentre Plus work coach to enrol in the scheme.

Funding is available for jobs and will cover the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus the associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.

As advocates for London Living Wage we require that all partners working with us commit to providing top-ups to ensure young people are paid at a fair rate.
