    FAQ

    What is the Kickstart Scheme?

    The Kickstart Scheme is a new incentive from the government for 16 - 24 year olds who currently claim Universal Credit and are at serious risk of becoming unemployed long-term.

    Under the scheme, the Government will cover 100 per cent of employment costs for 25 hours a week for up to 6 months.

    This includes the employee's salary at the appropriate minimum wage for their age, as well as National Insurance and pension contributions.

    Additionally, businesses will also receive £1,500 per placement to cover the cost of the placement and for any wrap-around support and training.

    TalentSpa makes it easy for businesses to apply and successfully access the scheme, plus provide the required training at no additional cost to you.

    Is my business eligible for the Kickstart Scheme?

    The benefit of using TalentSpa is that we enable businesses of any size to apply to the Kickstart Scheme via an official Government Kickstart Gateway.

    This is because only large companies able to provide the required employability training and mentoring can apply direct via the government website.

    However, you must be a limited company or registered charity with at least one years accounts filed at Companies House.

    Although failing one of the below, doesn’t mean you will not be approved, you are more likely to be approved if you:

    • have existed for a while.
    • regularly and recently submitted accounts.
    • have a credit score which is a low risk category.
    • have a low probability of imminent business failure.
    • have enough liquid assets to pay your debts.
    • do not have any recent county court judgments (CCJs).

    What type of Jobs can I offer for the Kickstart Scheme Placement?

    Each job placement must last at least 6 months long with a minimum of 25 hours per week and only require basic training.

    The job placements created with Kickstart Scheme funding must be new jobs.

    They must not:

    • Replace existing or planned vacancies
    • Cause existing employees, apprentices or contractors to lose or reduce their employment

    TalentSpa will also help you meet the funding criteria of helping your young person become more employable.

    We provide the required careers training and mentorship so that you can focus on your business and getting the most out of your Kickstarter.

    Can I employ a family member under the government Kickstart Scheme?

    Kickstart Scheme applicants must be in receipt of Universal Credit and be referred by a Job Centre Plus Work Coach.

    Can we recruit or refer people to Kickstart Scheme job placements?

    Young people should be referred via the DWP, Job Centre Plus Work Coaches.

    Only those young people on Universal Credit are eligible initially.

    How long will the Kickstart Scheme last? When will it accept applications until?

    The government has said that the scheme will run at least until December 2021.

    They have allocated £2bn in funding for the scheme.

    The scheme is proving very popular with businesses, so we are currently unsure if the government will stop the scheme earlier than expected if it uses up the £2bn before December 2021.

    Is there a maximum number of Kickstarter placements I can hire?

    No there is not a maximum number as long as the job placements meet the criteria.

    TalentSpa will help you with the application process to give you the best chance of being accepted.

    Do I get to choose the Kickstart I employ or does the jobcentre just send me someone ?

    The jobcentre will send you candidate CV’s of candidates that meet your job description. From there you would run a normal interview process and select the candidate best suited to your business.

    What happens if the Kickstart leaves my business, or we have to ask them to leave ?

    The Kickstart is an employee on a standard 6-month contract. If they don’t work out for whatever reason then you can terminate their contract as you would with any other employee.
