. Even while the current restrictions are in place, it’s worth looking forward and thinking about how you will get things moving again. The government’s Kickstart scheme might be able to help you. The scheme will fund a young person for 25 hrs a week for 6 months. The jobs must be new ones and not replace anyone that has been made redundant or furloughed.
The young person (under 25) will be recruited via the Job Centre and must be currently claiming Universal Credit. They will receive employability support and coaching during the placement and the business will receive a grant for every placement of up to £1,000 to cover costs such as uniform, PPE,
computer equipment and supervision.
Just think what you could do with an extra pair of hands!
• An overhaul of your customer database?
• Admin support allowing you to concentrate on strategic matters?
• Marketing assistant to help you prepare to get your message out as soon as lockdown lifts?
