Receive a £500 eBay fee credit when you take part in the kickstart scheme via FSB
The Kickstart Scheme was announced in July 2020 as part of the Chancellor’s Plan for Jobs. The scheme aims to create thousands of high-quality six-month work placements for young people aged 16 to 24 who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment.
Under the scheme, the Government will cover 100 per cent of employment costs for 25 hours a week. This includes the employee’s salary at the appropriate minimum wage for their age, as well as National Insurance and pension contributions.
The Department for Work and Pensions have recently removed the 30-placement limit on direct applications, which FSB welcomes as it creates more choice for small employers looking to get involved.

Adecco Working Ventures uses the £1,500 Government grant to cover all aspects of set up and development for the young person. As the salary, pension and employment costs like national insurance are covered, this means all you have to do is provide a brilliant placement for the young person you appoint.
