Hello, I am the Kickstart Scheme Administrator for Bache Samuels and today, I would like to talk about the benefits of being a part of the Kickstart Scheme for companies that may be interested in applying.
For starters, what is the Kickstart Scheme? The Kickstart Scheme is a government funded scheme set up to help young people, between the ages of 16 – 24, get into employment. A Kickstart placement is 6 months and during this time, the wages of said Kickstart employee will be paid for by the Department of Wages and Pensions (DWP) in full. Once the 6 months placement is up, you may choose to keep the Kickstarter on and offer them a position as a regular employee, or let them go.
Now that we’ve spoken a little on what the Kickstart Scheme is, let’s talk about the benefits of taking part in the scheme.
As you can see there are many benefits to taking part in the Kickstart Scheme, but you may have one last question. Why use Bache Samuels as a Gateway? Well, we give Employability Training free for all your Kickstarter’s ensuring they have a maximised placement with you and increasing employability for them beyond their placement. We also have free payroll services that you can get involved with and there are different packages you can opt for when coming through to use Bache Samuels as a Gateway. Check out our Kickstart Gateway page on our website to get involved or feel free to enquire further into our Gateway services. We would be happy to help optimise this opportunity for businesses!
There are many benefits to the Kickstart Scheme and many benefits to choosing Bache Samuels as your Gateway Service, thanks for your time in reading this today.
