The Government scheme provides fully-funded opportunities for employers to give young people work experience whilst allowing them to develop new projects and activity.

Apply via Antur Cymru Enterprise for grants through the Kickstart Scheme

Who can apply

You can use the Kickstart Scheme to create new 6-month job placements for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.


Currently Limited Companies with two years trading accounts can apply.

The job placements created with Kickstart funding must be new jobs.

They must not:

  • Replace existing or planned vacancies
  • Cause existing employees or contractors to lose or reduce their employment
  • The roles you are applying for must be for a minimum of 25 hours per week, for 6 months
  • Should not require people to undertake extensive training before they begin the job placement

If you have been trading for under two years as a Limited company or are a Sole Trader/Partnership you maybe eligible via the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).  Please click on the link to take you to the FSB kickstart page. Kickstart Scheme | FSB, The Federation of Small Businesses
