Deadline for Kickstart Scheme applications draws closer

14 December 2021

As of midday on 17 December 2021 employers will not be able to apply for new Kickstart Scheme grants or add more jobs to an existing grant. Unsuccessful applications before this date will have up to midday on this date to reapply.

The scheme was extended until March 2022 under the plan for jobs expansion, assisting employers in supporting and developing young workers into new jobs.

Successful applications will need to complete grant agreements by 7 January 2022, inform the Department for Work and Pensions of the vacancies by 31 January 2022 and start the young person on the job by 31 March 2022.

Other employment schemes are also still available.
