Kickstart

If you’re aged 16-24 and looking for work but struggling to find it due to having little or no experience, the Kickstart scheme could be for you. You would be working at least 25 hours a week, for 6 months, and you would be paid the National Minimum Wage for your age. 

You have to be claiming Universal Credit and have to be referred through your Jobcentre Plus Work Coach.  You can have a browse yourself at longhurst jobs in UK to see what vacancies are currently being advertised in Longhurst and elsewhere. If you see a vacancy you like, note down the job reference number and give it to your Work Coach. 

You can find more information, FAQs and case studies here: Kickstart Your Career #WMKickstartJobs - Youth Employment UK 

If you would like some support with a Kickstart application, whether it’s for yourself or someone you live with, get in touch with the Employment and Skills team and we’ll help you through it.
