OUR INTEGRATION WITH A GOVERNMENT SCHEME

We always make sure that we find new and every possible way to help you. The UK Government has introduced the Kickstart Scheme, an initiative to increase employment, and encouraged many organisations to become Gateways, intermediary to apply on behalf of organisations that have 29 or less jobs to offer

We are pleased to inform you that Quantum applied and is officially appointed as a Gateway for this initiative by the Department of Work and Pensions. The Government has granted and bestowed us with the responsibility of making sure that Employers put forward their job placements through us for this scheme and we deliver suitable candidates to help young people get employment.

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. It is a UK Government initiative to increase employment for people between the age of 16 to 24 years and are Universal Credit claimants. The funding available for each job will cover:

  • National Minimum/Living Wage for 25 hours per week
  • Associated employer National Insurance contributions
  • Employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions
HOW IT WORKS AND ITS PERKS

Irrespective of the size of the organisation, Employers can apply for the Kickstart Scheme by generating work placements for the young unemployed people. Employers can directly apply for this Scheme if they have 30 or more placements to offer.

If the placements being offered are 29 or less in number, then Employers need to go through Gateways to apply.

Through this Scheme, Employers will be able to access a large pool of young people with fresh potential. The placement descriptions will be submitted to the Department of Work and Pensions for bidding and a data of CVs of suitable candidates will be acquired from the Jobcentre Plus work coaches.

After the 6 month placement is completed, the candidate can move either ahead to another 6 month placement or can be retained by the Employer due to satisfactory working. If the Employer wishes to increase the working hours per week or retain the candidate they will have to pay the necessary funds themselves and the Scheme funds will not cover it.

WHERE DOES QUANTUM COME HERE?

Quantum Management has been helping companies to get great market advantage and grow towards success. We have also been officially appointed as a Gateway, an intermediary for Employers to submit applications to the Government for this grant, by the Department of Work and Pensions to support this Scheme.

We will apply on behalf of Employers who will have 29 or less placements to offer. Your placements’ descriptions and other necessary details will be sent to the Department of Work and Pensions and we will deliver a list of CVs of candidates that are best suited and fit the criteria of your generated placements.

All the benefits at no cost of the Employer.

TRUST, ETHICS AND PROVEN RESULTS

Due to our excelling performance and promising professional experience, we have had the opportunity on working on various Government projects.

We are highly accredited by the HMRC and are recommended and endorsed by many organisations to which we have had the privilege of working with. We are also proven and declared as a trusted Gateway by the DWP.

We understand all professional aspects and handle all tasks and applications with utmost carefulness and diligence as getting the best outcomes for you is our highest priority.

We can also offer simple and convenient recruitment and employment options. In the Kickstart Scheme, Employers can either employ the candidates under their functioning and payroll or they can form guidelines with Quantum and have the candidates work for them under our assessment and payroll. The terms can be discussed.

THERE’S MORE THAT WE CAN DO!

We understand that finding and recruiting the right candidate can be quite the task. We can ease the load off your shoulders and assist in:

  • Understanding the job description carefully and, once we receive the CVs, conducting the first round of interviews to shorten your interview process time and deliver a more refined list of candidate CVs.
  • Provide the young candidates with employability support like CV writing, interview preparation and confidence building.
  • Providing basic training to develop organisational, communicational and teamwork skills.
