BURTON’S MP Andrew Griffiths has urged businesses not to miss out on Government funding of up to £2,275.
This is available to firms for every young person they hire who is aged 18 to 24 and who have been unemployed for the previous six months.
He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses, providing them with additional benefits when they take on a young person.
“Not only will they be helping young job seekers onto the job ladder, but funding of up to £2,275 per young person that they employ under this scheme will be a significant boost for businesses finances.
“I would encourage all local businesses to see if they can benefit from this scheme, as it really is a ‘win win’ situation.
“I remain absolutely committed to working with local businesses.”
