About the event
You will find out more about the programme and the financial wage incentives available, and hear a case study example for how this programme can meet your needs, whilst providing a quality experience for a young person to learn in an entry level paid job.
At this stage we are targeting Hackney-based employers, to raise local awareness of this scheme working in partnership with Create and Hackney Council's Ways into Work programme to support local creative businesses to employ young people. Over the next year we will be working with all Growth Boroughs to ensure similar employer drives take place locally in situ.
Organisations already involved are:
In total, 19 positions will have been created, supporting paid work for unemployed young people who live in London's 6 growth boroughs: Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
Employers from all London boroughs are eligible to receive Creative Employment Programme wage incentives provided they fall under the Arts Council's cultural footprint.
Our caveat is that the young people (18-25) are unemployed and registered with Job Centre Plus, and reside in one of the 6 Growth boroughs, hence our push on local employers.
