Through the Young Persons Guarantee - Employer Recruitment Incentive, we strive to eliminate youth unemployment by offering employers a financial contribution of up to £4,500 to provide young people with meaningful and sustainable job opportunities supported by YPG funding. Employers require to offer a newly created post for at least 52 weeks to qualify, with the ultimate aim of the young person being kept on in a permanent role. Funding can be utilised in a number of ways such as additional supervisory costs, training, initial travel to work costs or wages.

The aim is to encourage employers to recruit young people aged 16 - 24 into sustainable employment, including Modern Apprenticeships.

I am now taking referrals for any employers who would like to access this funding, so please feel free to contact me if you have or know anyone that would be interested. The main email for employers to register their interest will be YPG@pkc.gov.uk.
