Halal Incorp Acting As Gateway Organisation For UK Government £2 billion Kickstart Scheme
**Are You A Business Owner In England?**
Could You Benefit From A Trainee Working for You?
Good news Halal Incorp (HI) is a Gateway provider for the £2billion Kickstart scheme which was recently introduced by the UK government.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak said:
Our country’s future will be built by the next generation, so it’s vital that we harness the talent of young people as we rebuild from the pandemic. But this isn’t just about kickstarting our economy, we’re giving opportunity and hope to thousands of young people, kickstarting their careers and offering them a brighter future.
Work and Pensions Secretary Thérèse Coffey said:
Every job created by the Kickstart Scheme is a potentially life-changing opportunity for a young person, and the heartening response of employers shows they recognise the huge value in giving youth a chance.
The pandemic has hit young people hard, but we are doing everything in our power to give them hope and the chance to find their place in the world of work.
Employers from all corners of the country have signed up, creating thousands of new and interesting jobs and helping us to level up as we build back better.
Young people have been some of the hardest hit by the pandemic and unemployment can have longstanding implications for their future jobs and wages. The Kickstart Scheme runs until December 2021 and is expected to create more than 250,000 high-quality jobs for them.
Employers of all sizes can apply for funding which covers:
1) 100% of the National Minimum Wage (or the National Living Wage depending on the age of the participant) for 25 hours per week for a total of 6 months
2) Associated employer National Insurance contributions
3) Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions
Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.
Employers will receive £1500 per 6 month placement for each individual taken on as a trainee. This is for setup costs.
A Kickstart Scheme application must be for a minimum of 30 job placements. If a single employer cannot provide this many job placements, they can find a Kickstart gateway to help them and submit an application on their behalf (Halal Incorp is a Gateway).
We are now taking expressions of interest for businesses interested in the Kickstart scheme.
