£25 million of European funding has been approved to support the continuation of our Jobs Growth Wales programme.
This investment will support the creation of 8,955 new job opportunities for 16-24 year olds over the next 3 years; 2,900 of which are due to be created by the end of March 2016. The programme will continue to provide unemployed young people with a job for six months which will be paid at or above the National Minimum Wage. The intention is that all jobs will be sustained by the host employer after the 6 month period has been completed.
We are currently working with our delivery agents and employers to create new job opportunities for the programme.
If you are a young person and would like careers support or advice, or you would like to register your interest in Jobs Growth Wales, please speak to your local Careers Wales Office on 0800 028 4844.
If you are an employer and would like further information, or would like to register your interest in the new programme then contact 03000 603 000.
