Kickstart is a Government scheme to help businesses take on a young person between the ages of 16-24. The scheme, which lasts up to six months per candidate, offers an employer a £1,500 grant to cover any initial expenditure, as well as to pay the candidates wages, national insurance and pension contribution.
This event will talk you through the scheme, how it can help your business, show you businesses that have already been successful with the scheme and give you time to ask questions.
Jenn Chidley-Sanders oversees the gateway on behalf of Somerset Chamber, and she will be joined by a DWP representative Martin Plumley, Employer Coordinator (Avon, Somerset and Gloucestershire District) and will both be on hand to help you find out more about this initiative.
We are delighted to also be joined by Tristan Savage, Managing Director of Falcon Vehicle Solutions who will talk through his first-hand experience of the Kickstart scheme.
