750+ jobs for local, young people across Herts and Beds

In July 2020, responding to unemployment levels brought about by the COVID crisis, the UK Government introduced the Kickstart Scheme for 16-24 year olds receiving Universal Credit.

Aimed at getting young, unemployed people into work placements, the government committed to a number of employer benefits to facilitate this. Over 500 organisations UK-wide, including Wenta (managing agent of the btc), enrolled to become a ‘Gateway’, to help small business owners access the scheme.
