Tech sector hiring peaks as firms take advantage of the government’s Kickstart Scheme

The tech sector has been hiring at levels not seen since pre-pandemic levels and is now taking advantage of the government’s Kickstart Scheme to recruit the under-24s into the sector. It has seen the number of jobs advertised within the digital tech sector rise to over 120,000 in recent weeks.

UK firms are using the government’s Kickstart Scheme, launched by the Chancellor in late 2020, as a way of creating more jobs for young people. Youth unemployment reached 14.4 per cent between October and December 2020 with 284,000 fewer 16 to 24 year olds in employment than in January to March 2020, published data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveals.

The Kickstart Scheme is open for 16 to 24 year olds and sees UK companies offer six-month work placements to young people who are claiming Universal Credit. The government pays 100 per cent of wages including national insurance and pension contributions. Additionally, according to figures from the jobs search engine Adzuna, one in six openings in the digital tech industry are now suitable for entry-level jobseekers.

Work and Pensions secretary Therese Coffey stated, “Surging sectors – like tech – are bringing fresh opportunity and hope for our young jobseekers. Through the Kickstart Scheme, apprenticeships and traineeships, these companies are helping bring our Plan for Jobs to life, boosting the long-term job prospects of a generation that is capable of so much as we build back better.”

It is thought that over 60% of UK tech sector companies plan to take advantage of the Kickstart Scheme in 2021.
