3. Kickstart scheme for young people
The Kickstart Scheme allows firms to offer six month placements to 16-24 year olds who are at risk of long term unemployment, with their salaries for 25 hours a week covered by the government. Business also get £1,500 per job for set-up costs, support and training. Applications should be for a minimum of 30 job placements. However, East Devon District Council is coordinating requests for fewer placements from employers. To register your interest, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state your company name, sector and the number of placements you would like to offer. We will coordinate details and refer on to the relevant organisation.
