So, I’m guessing you’re here because you've applied for some funding via the Kickstart Scheme and now you need a contract template to send to them.
If so, let me tell you a bit more about this Kickstart Contract Template and why this is a great investment for your business.
WHAT'S THE KICKSTART SCHEME?
The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for young people, fully funded by the Government. So, you can have people work for you, and receive funding from the Goverment to pay for it.
However, there are a few stipulations which employers need to adhere to in order to receive the wage subsidy. The Kickstart Scheme job placements must:
- Last six months
- Be at least 25 hours per week (employers can top-up wages if the role is over this)
- Include support for young people to help them get work after they finish their Kickstart Scheme job (if not taken on longer term following the placement)
- Be ‘additional’ – this means the job would not exist without Kickstart Scheme grant funding and must not replace existing/planned jobs or cause existing employers or contractors to reduce their employment.
WHY YOU NEED TO HAVE A CONTRACT FOR KICKSTART WORK PLACEMENT?
Well firstly, it's the law and part of the Kickstart Rules.
Since 1 April 2020, you have to give all new employees a contract on their first working day. Plus, on a purely practical level, it ensures that they know what is expected of them and what they are getting from you, i.e. their hours of work, holidays etc.
But, another important reason is that if things ever did go sour with your employee, this is the number one document that can make or break your business.
