Kickstart scheme

You can sign up for the Kickstart scheme today, to give our local young people the chance to have a 6 month paid placement to help them get back on their feet.

25 hours work a week, minimum wage, pensions and national insurance fully subsidised by the HM Treasury.

Join this landmark scheme to help our young residents gain invaluable work experience and support them in securing a job long-term.

Apply for the Kickstart scheme on the GOV.UK website.

As the majority of organisations in our area don't have the availability to supply 30 roles as set out in the guidance, the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce has agreed to take on the role as a representative.

They will gather businesses that have availability for the scheme and make the bid on their behalf.

Please contact their membership manager, Coral Benham by email: to proceed with the scheme.
