Kickstart Scheme

About the Kickstart Scheme

The Kickstart Scheme is a UK Government funded scheme that provides funding to create new job placements for 16-24 year olds who are on Universal Credit and at risk of long term unemployment.

MGS sees this as a call to action for all employers to support youth employability in these challenging times. It is up to all of us to support the future workforce and give them the opportunity to get high quality work experience and build their employability skills.

MGS has been approved as a Kickstart Gateway for the sector and we are currently progressing with Kickstart opportunities. As a Living Wage employer we are topping up each Kickstart opportunity to the Real Living Wage.
