Good news on jobs

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

An ex­tra 350 jobs are to be cre­ated across South La­nark­shire thanks to the ex­pan­sion of the hugely suc­cess­ful South La­nark­shire Jobs Fund.

The age range of young peo­ple who can par­tic­i­pate in the scheme has now been in­creased from 16 to 29 , which was pre­vi­ously 16 to 24.

The fund is de­signed to sup­port and en­cour­age lo­cal busi­nesses to at­tract new tal­ent and ex­pand their work­force.

The scheme pro­vides f i nan­cial sup­port to em­ploy­ers for at least 26 weeks, which cov­ers half the salary costs at the na­tional min­i­mum wage.

Busi­nesses look­ing to ac­cess the fund should call 0800 731 0444 or email info@ rtws.org for de­tails.
