As part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, the Kickstart Scheme is an initiative being run by the Department for Work and Pensions that will create thousands of new, fully subsidised jobs for young people across the UK.
The six-month placements are open to those aged 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment. There will also be extra funding to help young people move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart placement.
Keen to support young people seeking a career in our sector, Gravity Media has submitted an application to support 10 roles. We will provide an update on our application in due course.
