Jobs through the Kickstart scheme
On Universal Credit?
Read on to find out how to apply for one of 250 paid jobs through the Kickstart Scheme.
What is the Kickstart Scheme?
We’re working in partnership with the government to create 6-month-long job placements for people aged 16-24 on Universal Credit.
These entry-level roles are specially designed for those who are struggling to find employment and want the chance to learn from scratch – giving you new skills to take forward as you start your career.
It doesn’t matter what your education level or work experience is. The only criteria is that you MUST be aged 16-24 and currently receiving Universal Credit.
You’ll get paid for the duration of your placement.
Who can apply for a Kickstart Scheme job?
To apply for a job through the Kickstart Scheme you must:
- Be aged between 16-24
- Receiving Universal Credit
If you meet this criteria you are welcome to apply.

Where are the roles based?
It depends. Some will require you to go into a workplace, whereas some of the other roles are fully remote so you’ll be working from home. (Obviously the current pandemic restrictions will affect the location of the role as safety is a priority).
