Wenta partners with Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce to help local businesses access Kickstart Scheme
Wenta and the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce are working in partnership in order to become an 'intermediary' for small businesses in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and North London to access the Government Kickstart Scheme.
Wenta and the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce are working in partnership as an 'intermediary' for small businesses in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and North London to access the Government Kickstart Scheme. The scheme is the latest business support initiative announced which will provide funding to employers in order to create new job placements for 16 to 24-year-olds.
The scheme has received recent scrutiny from many small businesses across England due to the strict eligibility criteria set of having to have a large minimum number of jobs available in order to be able to qualify. Through this partnership, Wenta, in collaboration with the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce, will break down this barrier for small businesses and enable any SME across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and North London to be able to access the scheme, regardless of how many placements they will be able to provide.
