BCC responds to the opening of the Kickstart scheme

Created by
Commenting on the launch of the Kickstart scheme, allowing employers to offer government-subsidised work placements for young people aged between 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment, BCC Head of People Policy Jane Gratton said:

“At a time when cashflow is tight, this fully funded scheme will help employers bring young people into the workplace and develop new talent for the future.”

“To be successful, Kickstart needs to create long-term, quality employment opportunities and ensure that both businesses and employees are fully supported throughout the placement.”

“Rooted in local business communities, Chambers of Commerce understand employers’ growth aspirations, and will be working to bring companies and young people together to create new jobs."
