The Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit.
Back when Tony Blair was in power the government had a scheme called back young Britain. The opticians that I used to own took on six young people and it really changed everything in a positive way I’d been used to taking on work experience students and apprentices but these guys were taken on on the premise that there would be wages covered for six months and that would help with my marketing and operations
the government knew scheme is called Kickstarter the one challenge is it’s really aimed at larger businesses because you need to apply for no less than 30 people so more motivation to get involved this time around was to help others to connect to the funds and the grant.
if you are a small business and would like to apply for the Kickstarter scheme make sure that you go through this checklist before applying
have you ever been bankrupt?
Do you have a County Court judgment against you
can you morally say that you will educate these young people so they are in a better position after six months to be more employable?
If the answer is yes then please send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll help you to connect into the funds and answer any questions you may have
Want to create job placements for young people within your business? Check if you can apply for a #grant through the Kickstart Scheme
- f you are creating a minimum of 30 job placements you can apply here as an individual business

Always embracing digital disruption – Special interest in changes in consumer behavior, how will they impact on the business
Loving social media was born from a love of digital communication and the passion for guerrilla marketing over 15 years ago I discovered Myspace and then Facebook. They did wonders for my optical business in then evolved for me doing friends social media then hiring an apprentice her salary was covered for all the friends and colleagues social media. In 2019 the opticians (Goodlooking Optics) that I owned merged with another optician the merge didn’t go perfectly and there was a conflict so I decided to completely devote myself to love social media. in January of 2019 I sold all the customers of loving social media in preparation for this big merge which I then regretted. today loving social media has 24 clients a pure passion of getting your website optimised the Page 1 with a joined up approach using social PPC And SEO Like all self-respecting digital companies, we know that we are always learning because things are always changing!
