Want to bring new talent and perspectives into your workforce, with 6-months full wage support? IVE can support employers to access the government’s Kickstart programme as a gateway organisation. If your business is interested in accessing the scheme, please complete the form below.
Kickstart creates fully-funded jobs for young people at risk of long-term unemployment by providing funding to employers to create new placements.
IVE will support organisations to access the scheme, by making a joint application with other employers for the minimum 30 placements required.
If you think you may be able to provide one or more 6-month placement, or a part-placement of less than 6-months, we want to hear from you.
Employers will receive £1,500 funding per job placement to be spent on support and training for the candidate.
As a training and apprenticeship provider, IVE actively support diverse young people to access meaningful jobs. This means we are well-placed to support employers in developing their candidate’s skills and experience. This might include:
We would aim to begin the application process before the end of the year, working with employers to ensure a suitable timeline, with placements likely to start in 2021.

Once a job placement is created, it can be taken up by a second person once the first successful applicant has completed their 6-month term.
