Are you looking to employ young people into your business?

The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create new 6-month job placements for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.

Whether you need to recruit quickly to keep up with the demands of Covid-19 such as manufacturing healthcare equipment or you have employees at risk of redundancy, the Employment Hub can help your business through free impartial support. Just complete the form below.

We can help your business to:

  • Quickly find new employees through the Employment Hub talent matching service. Tell us your recruitment needs and we will find and introduce you to candidates suitable for the role.
  • Access support for employees who are at risk of or facing redundancy. Refer staff to the Employment Hub where we can support them in finding alternative employment.
  • Access support to hire a new apprentice. We can talk you through the process of taking on your first apprentice and help you find a suitable candidate.
  • Get support to up-skill existing staff. We can help you build a stronger workforce by helping them gain skills that match your business needs.

Support through the Employment Hub is available to any business based in Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.
