The fund is used to support a number of projects aimed at raising skills and job prospects.

£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.

If you are a young person looking to kick start your career, Jobs Growth Wales could be the perfect opportunity for you. All jobs are advertised on Careers Wales (external link). Talk to your local Careers Wales office on 0800 028 4844 for further information or if you would like careers support and advice.

If you are an employer who is planning on growing your business, Jobs Growth Wales could help you achieve your goals. Your first point of contact is via our Skills Gateway for Business (external link). Here you can complete an expression of interest form to determine your eligibility for the programme.

The Jobs Growth Wales programme is funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund.
