Jobs Growth Wales

The European Social Fund in Wales is used to support a number of projects aimed at raising skills and job prospects.

The Jobs Growth Wales programme provides unemployed young people with a job opportunity for a six month period paid at or above the National Minimum Wage for a minimum of 25 hours per week.

The intention is that all of the Jobs Growth Wales job opportunities will be sustained by the host employer after the 6 month period has completed. Jobs created must be additional to, and not replace, positions that would otherwise be filled. The majority of jobs created by Jobs Growth Wales are created in the private sector. However, the programme also offers support for:

  • the third sector, in partnership with 3SC (external link) and Groundwork North Wales (external link)
  • young people entering into self employment
  • graduates, in partnership with the GO Wales programme(external link).

You can keep up to date with the latest job opportunities through Careers Wales (external link) or by following @JobsGrowthWales (external link) on Twitter.
