Want some help to get into work?

If you know what you want to do and you’re actively looking and ready to start work, this strand of Jobs Growth Wales+ can help you get a job.

You’ll work closely with your Jobs Growth Wales+ provider who will find you a quality job opportunity with a local employer. You’ll be part of a company, fully signed up to the terms and conditions of the employer you are placed with and get paid.

Employers receive a wage subsidy from the Welsh Government to help pay your salary for the first six months. So, Jobs Growth Wales+ is an attractive programme for employers to get involved with – helping to create more job opportunities to get you into work.

What happens on the Employment strand of Jobs Growth Wales+?

You’ll agree your Individual Learning Plan with your Jobs Growth Wales+ provider who will use this to arrange the support you need to secure a job.

Activities could include all or a combination of the following:

  • Work-related preparation such as essential skills and what to expect when you get a job
  • Support to build your confidence and improve your interview techniques
  • Help to find and apply for jobs
  • Coaching and mentoring during the first six months of your employment so you can continue to grow and develop your skills

Your Jobs Growth Wales+ provider will support you to ensure that you receive all the help you need.

How much will you get paid?

On this strand of Jobs Growth Wales+ you can receive a training allowance of up to £60 per week whilst you are looking for a job.

You must attend for a minimum of 16 hours per week. However, the full £60 training allowance will only be paid if you attend for 30 hours or more in any 7-day period. The amount of training allowance you receive will depend on the number of hours you participate.

When you get a job, instead of a training allowance you’ll earn a proper salary paid at least at National Minimum Wage.

When you’re on the Jobs Growth Wales+ programme you will also build up annual leave each month without it affecting your training allowance or salary.
