Creating homes and places where people want to live


Kickstart is for young people aged between 16 and 24 who are claiming Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. It’s all about giving young people the chance to build their confidence and skills in the workplace.

Kickstarters are paid at national minimum wage, for 25 hours a week for six months – so they really are great opportunities.

We're already employed 12 young people through Kickstart, with more due to start later in the year.

If you’re eligible, or know somebody who is, you must speak to your JobCentre Plus Work Coach first – who will then refer you to us to apply.

If you have any questions or want to find out more, email us or call 0115 746 9100.

You can find out more on the government website.
