You may or may not have heard of the Kickstart scheme? If not, it’s one of the government initiatives to help businesses bounce back and to help 18-24 year olds made redundant during the pandemic get back into employment in the process.

Sport & Activity professionals have set up two webinars for people that want more information on it, are looking at it or have already applied via a gateway such as them.

Even if you don’t think it’s right for you at the moment because of the lockdown and you’re not thinking of recruiting for obvious reasons, it’s worth joining because at the other side of the lockdown it could be a great way to use this fully government funded scheme to help your business bounce back, whilst giving a very deserving young professional a chance and it can take a long time to get set up on the programme so you want to give yourself plenty of time to do that.

The first webinar is all about the scheme, the pros and the cons, how to see if you’re eligible, how to make it work well for both parties and all the HR considerations you need to think about before doing it.

The second webinar is all about how to recruit the right people on the scheme, as from experience, that’s the most important aspect. It’s led by acclaimed speaker, best-selling business author and world renowned psychologist Simon Hartley who can guide you on the principles he’s learnt from elite level sport (including Olympians, Premier League football clubs, international rugby and cricket stars amongst others) and world class executives in business.  The principles taught here are relevant to any recruitment, whether that be kickstart, other employees or even franchisees, so this will be well worth tuning into for that alone.
