The Vale of Glamorgan Council can help you with the new Kickstart scheme. You create six-month work placements for 16 to 24 year olds who are currently on universal credit and are at risk of long term un-employment, this placement will be fully funded by the Government.

 

The scheme funding will cover 100% of the national minimum wage for 25 hours a week, along with national insurance contributions and automatic enrolment contributions.  The scheme isn’t an apprenticeship; however, people can move into an apprenticeship at any time during or after their placement with you.

 

The job must be new, cannot be used to fill a redundant post, nor can it cause existing employees to lose their job.

 

The Vale of Glamorgan Council will also help support some set up costs for either equipment, training or to develop employability skills for the young person recruited.

 

Employers of all sizes can apply. You can apply to fill one job or several.
