Jobs Growth Wales
£25m 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 6 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.
