The Kickstart Scheme was a UK Government funded scheme that provided funding to create new job placements for 16-24 year olds who are on Universal Credit and at risk of long term unemployment. It took place 2021-2022.

MGS saw this as a call to action for all employers to support youth employability in these challenging times. It is up to all of us to support the future workforce and give them the opportunity to get high quality work experience and build their employability skills. 

MGS was approved as a Kickstart Gateway for the sector so we could progress Kickstart opportunities. As a Living Wage employer we topped up each Kickstart opportunity to the Real Living Wage.
