Kickstart is a youth employment scheme.

It offers a 6-month paid job with a local employer.

To be eligible you need to be aged 16 – 24 years, on Universal Credit and at risk of long term unemployment.

If you are interested in this option, talk to your Work Coach at the Job Centre about the Kickstart opportunities that are local to you or look for vacancies
