Employers are being urged by the Government to “Do their bit” to reboot the UK Economy by utilising the Kickstart scheme. The scheme is open to all businesses that are registered with Companies House, and is aimed at 16-24 year old’s that are out of work. The programme covers the entire spectrum of business sectors from Garden Centres to Hairdressers, Supermarkets to Construction and much more. Staff that are taken on through the scheme will have their wages covered by the Government, along with Employers National insurance and minimum contributions to pensions. In addition employers are paid a grant of £1500 per employee taken on through the scheme. This grant is to be used for onboarding and training. The process itself is for companies to register their interest with a Kickstart Gateway like www.kickstartportal.co.uk and then supply Job Descriptions. There are some additional requirements such as not using the scheme to replace existing employees that will need to be checked. Your Gateway can assist you through this process. Register with your Kickstart Gateway portal now and let’s get Britain moving in 2021.
