Kickstart Scheme Facilitation

The Chamber is proud to be an approved Kickstart Scheme gateway. This means we can help your business access the Kickstart talent pool whether you recruit one Kickstarter or an entire cohort.

Employers can spread the start date of the job placements up until the end of December 2021.

Further funding is available for training and support so that young people on the scheme can get a job in the future.
