What does hundo do for you? 

Application assistance

We have helped many businesses to prepare their applications for the scheme. We will ensure that you are in compliance with the various (often vague) criteria to make sure your roles are approved.

Scheme Support

The scheme requires you to prove that you are supporting your hires across career planning, CV writing, interview skills, industry knowledge and broader career development and information. At hundo we want to put this all in one place. Allowing a young person to explore their career options and your business to easily evidence the support you have provided.

Create your company a customisable online resource

All of our businesses will get a kickstart compliant resource bank as part of the hundo community. This is specific to your roles and industry and tailored to your business and culture.

Career Planning and Information

We create original content as well as aggregate content from all of our kickstart businesses. This means we have a large number of different roles and progression paths not only in your business but from the wider industry and kickstart community.

CV and Interview Guidance

We will create with you a tailored guide to writing a CV and preparing for your interview process. This means that a young person will arrive to you better prepared. It also allows us to make sure that we are giving young people advice that is accurate and current for your industry.

Independent Support

hundo will provide an independent contact point at the outset, midway and endpoint of the placement. Ensuring the best possible experience and outcomes for both your business and the young person.

Scheme Compliance

As the scheme progresses we are in continual contact with gateways and the DWP. We want to ensure that together, we provide gold standard kickstart placements and help businesses ensure compliance with the scheme.

How much do we charge?

We charge nothing to your business, £500 per young person is drawn from the government setup grant to cover our costs.
