New action on jobs, 24/06/15 [S]

A new employer recruitment incentive, backed by up to £10m funding from the Scottish Government, will aim to help over two thousand young people into work.

Scotlandís Employer Recruitment Incentive is more closely aligned to the improving economic conditions and jobs market and delivers key recommendations from Developing Scotlandís Young Workforce. The new programme replaces a previous scheme which created up to 10,000 job opportunities across Scotlandís 32 local authorities.

The new incentive offers employers around £4,000 to offset the additional costs of recruiting and employing a young person including equipment and staff time for training and induction.

For full details see the Scottish Government news release.
