If you are an employer looking to create jobs for young people, you can apply for funding as part of the Kickstart Scheme.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new jobs 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:
Employers can spread the job start dates up until 31 December 2021. You will get funding until 30 June 2022 if a young person starts their job on 31 December 2021.

There is now a link to a video walkthrough of the online application in the ‘How to apply – Apply online’ section.
