Kickstart jobs scheme expanded to help small firms apply

The Government has opened its new Kickstart jobs scheme to intermediaries, after criticism that the £2bn scheme would only help larger companies able to take on at least 30 young workers. The scheme will pay employers' costs for six-month work placements for 16- to 24-year-olds, but smaller firms were told they would need to group together or work with intermediaries to qualify. The Federation of Small Businesses is one intermediary authorised to help small businesses with fewer than 30 vacancies to apply for funding.

The FSB has partnered with Adecco Working Ventures to help process applications. Work and Pensions Secretary Thérèse Coffey commented: “Small businesses are absolutely vital to our recovery as we build back better and a key part of the Kickstart Scheme. It’s great to have the Federation of Small Businesses and Adecco supporting them to take full advantage of our landmark Kickstart Scheme by becoming a national Kickstart gateway.”
