Employing Through New Start

The New Start Employer Grant is available to Businesses and Organisations* to support the creation of employment opportunities to participants on the New Start project.

The opportunity must have some form of training/ learning attached to it, including the provision of time (as part of their contracted hours) to receive employability support by New Start staff. The grant is claimed against the salary costs of the participant and related support costs incurred by the employer.

New Start staff will identify and shortlist suitable participants for the employer to select from. The employer will interview participants and employ an agreed number of New Start participants. The employer will provide feedback to New Start staff related to unsuccessful participants.

The grant award is in two parts:

  • Salary costs: reimbursement of salary costs for up to 3 months for 30 hours per week at participant minimum wage
  • Support costs: maximum of £3,000 for up to a 3-month period

Contact crf@groundworknottingham.org.uk and the New Start team will be in touch to discuss the process.

*Eligible applicants will be employers that have a valid working address within the following local authority areas: Nottingham City, Mansfield, Bassetlaw or Newark and Sherwood.
