Finding your ideal placement

We have paid Kickstart placements in hospitality, digital, retail, music, marketing, finance and many more.

All jobs are listed with Job Centre Plus and you must be referred by your Work Coach before applying.

About the scheme
The Kickstart work placement scheme is a six-month paid job with a local business or charity that’s fully funded by the government. It provides a valuable opportunity to gain legitimate work experience in a supportive local company. The scheme was announced by the Chancellor in the summer and expects to offer hundreds of thousands of young people job opportunities over the next few years.

Applying for Kickstart
Jobs from the Kickstart scheme will be open to 16-24 years olds who are claiming Universal Credit. If you’re unemployed and worried about your long-term prospects, talk to your Job Centre Plus work coach about local job opportunities and whether the scheme is right for you.

Work placements via the Boost:ed service will benefit from expert training and support every fortnight, developing your enterprise, resilience and employability skills and helping your progression to sustained employment.
