We enjoyed a very successful visit to Hoxton Job Centre last week. Sorcha, Jonathan and Abigail from Sutton Croft attended to support both job seekers and our kickstart businesses looking for individuals to fill their current job vacancies via the kickstart scheme.
The Kickstart Scheme funds hundreds of thousands of high quality 6 month work placements for young people aged 16-24 on Universal Credit deemed at risk of long term unemployment due to Coronavirus.
The scheme pays employers 100% of the National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions. There is also a £1,500 grant per job placement available for setup costs, support and training.
For several months we have been visiting job centres throughout London to answer any questions relating to the kickstart scheme, interview and refer candidates to suitable positions.
Keep an eye out for Sutton Croft attending a local Job Centre in your area. We are here to support 16-24 years in gaining employment via the kickstart scheme.
