New Forest Business Support Hour
31 March @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Join us for an informal virtual networking meeting! An opportunity to update each other on how our businesses are progressing, to meet new people and to ask each other questions in a relaxed setting.
Join us on today’s Business Support Hour to hear from New Forest businesses who are taking part in the Government’s Kickstart Scheme.
You can use the Kickstart Scheme to create new 6-month job placements for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment. The job placements should support the participants to develop the skills and experience they need to find work after completing the scheme.
Funding is available for 100% of the relevant National Minimum Wage for 25 hours a week, plus associated employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions. There is also £1,500 per job placement available for setup costs, support and training.
Support and advice is on hand with the opportunity to share experience and expertise with fellow New Forest businesses. We look forward to welcoming you online!
Please note that this is an online Zoom meeting and is free of charge.
You do need to book by 1500 on Wednesday. You will then receive an email just after 1400 with the Zoom meeting ID and password to enable you to join the meeting online.
