Kickstart Scheme

Trade have 2 posts available as part of the UK Government's Kickstart Scheme

  • Administrative Assistant
  • Funding & Media Assistant

The Kickstart Scheme is a 6-month paid job with a local employer, funded by the Government. Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to 16-24 year olds, who are claiming Universal Credit, and are at risk of long term unemployment. If you have a work coach they will talk to you about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you.

Businesses across Leicester are able to offer unemployed young people guaranteed jobs as part of a new scheme taking place in the city.

The scheme comes at a time when the impact of the coronavirus lockdowns is being felt in terms of job losses, and offers an opportunity for people who have been made redundant from one job sector to gain valuable new skills, experience and training in another.

The local authority’s role will be to act as an intermediary between applicants and local firms, putting candidates in touch with employers across Leicester who want to fill job vacancies. 

Youngsters taking part in Kickstart would be guaranteed a job for at least six months, which could also lead to apprenticeships or further work placements. 

Trade has roles on offer and if you take on a Kickstart placement you might be able to progress to an apprenticeship with us.

Use this link to see how to let the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) know that you are interested in the Kickstart scheme.

Once you have been referred by your workcoach, or if you wish to find out more information and apply yourself, please send an email to

You can also gain experience with us through volunteering for a variety of roles we have available. Visit our volunteering page to find out more.
