Kickstarting Job Creation

It was confirmed today that over 120,000 jobs have been created by the flagship £2 billion Kickstart Scheme to date. The government is now making it even easier for employers of all sizes to sign up – redoubling efforts to support young people during the pandemic.

  • Young people are often hit hardest when the economy faces significant challenges, which is why the government will do everything practical to ensure they are not left without hope or opportunity - keeping the promise to level up opportunity across the country.
  • Since the launch of Kickstarted last Autumn, the government has been working with companies to create over 120,000 Kickstart jobs, to support young people on to the first rung of the job ladder; and to encourage more employers of all sizes to join. The requirement for a minimum of 30 vacancies requirement to apply is also being scrapped so more smaller and medium size businesses can take part and thus enable these businesses to create hundreds of thousands more high quality job placements.
  • In moving the Kickstart Scheme up another gear, the government will continue to work with companies across the country to invest in, and harness, the talents of our young people, putting them on the path to a brighter future as Britain builds back better.
