Making it easy for your organisation to get involved in the Government Kickstart Scheme

ManpowerGroup and The Prince’s Trust are partnering to help companies support thousands of young people on six-month paid work placements through the UK Government’s Kickstart Scheme.

With youth unemployment set to reach record highs, this new partnership brings together our leading expertise in recruitment and employability. By collaborating with ManpowerGroup and The Prince’s Trust, not only will organisations like yours boost your talent pipelines in this critical time, but we will also help you to provide high-quality Kickstart placements that will upskill young people.

We will ensure the application process is as seamless as possible for you. You can rest assured that the young people in your roles will receive expert employability training from the UK’s leading youth charity, ensuring Kickstart is a springboard for success.

Together we can support young people through this crisis, help them gain vital on-the-job training and plan for the future.
