Jobs Growth Wales

Jobs Growth Wales

Jobs Growth Wales – it’s time for us to support your business

As an employer you could save thousands in salary costs for each young person you take on through the Jobs Growth Wales programme.

So, how can we support your business?

  • Support to advertise your job vacancy, sift applications and attend candidate interviews (if required) provided FREE OF CHARGE
  • 50% wage subsidy when you recruit young people aged between 16-24 years old for 26 weeks
  • Reimbursement of 50% of salary costs (at National Minimum Wage) for a young person who works between 25-40 hours per week
  • Employers are welcome to top-up salaries themselves should they wish the young person to earn more than the National Minimum Wage rate
  • Educ8 will provide coaching and mentoring support to young people during their 6 month placement
  • Educ8 can also support employers and young people to progress onto an Apprenticeship Programme after the 6 month Jobs Growth Wales opportunity comes to an end

In return for helping you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity, we require a few guarantees from you as the employer. The young person must be contracted to work 25-40 hours per week for a minimum of 26 weeks and every job funded by Jobs Growth Wales has to be additional to the existing workforce. You should also be in a position to provide a real opportunity for permanent employment once the 26 weeks come to an end.

We are looking for quality jobs that present young people with genuine opportunities to gain valuable work experience. We think it’s the least our young people deserve. Click here to find out more about the Jobs Growth Wales programme.
