Our Kickstart Support service
At Kick start support we are looking to offer a hand to companies looking to utilise the Kickstart scheme. Under this giant fiscal policy, employers can offer a 6-month fully funded work placement to a young person aged 16-24. We give all organisations, large and small, the chance to make the most of Kickstart, regardless of the barriers to entry. The scheme not only supports additional resources on the long road back from COVID but offers access to young enthusiastic talent!
