The Kickstart Scheme has changed.
Kickstart Scheme axes 30-job minimum requirement
Employers no longer need a minimum of 30 job placements to access the government’s Kickstart Scheme, enabling SMEs to apply directly or continue to use gateway organisations.
You no longer need a minimum of 30 job placements to apply directly for a grant.
You can now apply for a Kickstart Scheme grant by either:
applying online yourself
getting help from a Kickstart gateway who is already working with the Kickstart Scheme
