As of 22nd April 2021, our Work Coaches have made over 603,000 referrals to Kickstart jobs. Young people on the Kickstart Scheme can be referred to multiple Kickstart jobs and several young people can be referred to each job.

Once a referral is made, individual employees interview, review and hire young people to placements as they would for other jobs.
