Homeflo and the Kickstart Scheme
The Kickstart Scheme.
The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements for 16 to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long-term unemployment.
The UK government’s Kickstart jobs scheme has created 19,000 jobs for out-of-work young people since its launch at the start of September. Companies taking part in the scheme include Tesco, Domino’s Pizza, LadBible, Network Rail, The Royal Mint, and Most importantly Homeflo!
Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said: “We introduced the Kickstart scheme to harness the talent of Britain’s young people because we know that our country’s future will be in their hands.
eBay has recently announced that they are teaming up with small business leaders to provide up to 1,000 new job opportunities for young people aged between 16-24. This is great news for young people across the United Kingdom who are currently struggling to find a work placement. The Pandemic has caused all sorts of problems for young people including university students being locked down and resorting to online lectures from their bedrooms.
Here at Homeflo we are proud to be investors in young people and as a growing business ourselves we believe the young generation can lead us forward. Every day is an opportunity to make a real change in the world here at Homeflo.
The main point of the Kick Start scheme is of course to give thousands of young people across the United Kingdom a ‘Kickstart’ Into the working world. However, it is also a big game-changer in the HR sector of every business big or small. The number of young people in employment fell by 174,000 from the previous quarter, and by 191,000 from the previous year to 3.52 million (Source – GovUK)
Homeflo is proud to invest in young people across the United Kingdom and Homeflo is more than a property homecare company. We believe in opportunities and change.
