Future Job Funds (FJF) Project

SACOMA is delivering the Future jobs Fund as part of a wider partnership of 3rd Sector organisation led by the national Third Sector Consortium (3SC).

Creating sustained employment opportunities for young people is the cornerstone upon which this opportunity is built.

SACOMA is delivering in London to create  jobs in the roles of Project Assistant, Admin Assistant, Outreach and Youth Work, suitable for long-term unemployed young people aged 18-24.  We will work with several host partners to create job opportunities under the umbrella of the partnership. The job roles are flexible, require no previous experience or less technical skills with training being offered on the job. We work with local Job Centre Plus (JCP) and match unemployed young people with the host employer for 6 months.

Once placed in employment, we assess the young people’s future employment needs and provide a tailored programme of relevant mentoring, employability support and accredited training based on agreed Personal Action Plans. Provide a work focused IAG and vocational training (NVQs) and support in the workplace and access to a wide network of potential future employers.

WHAT IS THE FUTURE JOBS FUND?

The Future Jobs Fund is set up to provide additional job opportunities to jobseekers and other people on out of work benefits who would otherwise be unable to find work, by ensuring a significant number of people, particularly those aged 18 – 24 who have been unemployed for around 12 months, are able to take up these new jobs.

What are the criteria?


For Employers -
  • Create additional jobs, lasting at least 6 months, either for long term unemployed young people or people in unemployment hotspots
  • The work done will benefit local communities; and
  • There will be support for employees to move into long-term, sustained employment.
For Employees –
  • Aged 18 – 24 who have been unemployed for around 6 - 12 months
  • 25+ claiming JSA living in a hotspot Area
  • Long term unemployed

2.46 million People out of work in November 2009. Less than half of that figure is job vacancies available. What can we do to find jobs for the vast amount of people out of work? How can we help society; give something back to the public. Helping both employers and citizens connect, making the world a better place for us all.

In 2009, the government decided that they needed to do something about the severe amount of people out of work and counting. The government have set aside £1 billion to help in the creation of new vacancies and try to lower the growth of unemployment within Britain. The money which has been set aside has been set to be spent between October 2009 and March 2011. Also considering the high percentage of young adults that are currently out of work, the government initiative aims to target 18 – 24 year olds who have been out of work and signing with the Job Centre Plus for at least 6 months. This project in which the Government is currently working on is called the Future Jobs Fund.

The prospects for employment of young people, especially those between the ages of 18-24 has been severely affected by the recession, and the Future Jobs Fund offers an opportunity for employers to work with young people to right that economic wrong. The Future Jobs Fund aims to create an additional 150,000 jobs to aid the increase of unemployment within Britain. 50,000 of those jobs which are created are to be aimed at hotspot areas (areas of high unemployment). Figures of 350,000 young adults are expected to be out of work by 2011 if nothing is done to help. In addition to this, out of the £1 billion set aside, each job which is created the government is giving no more or less than £6,500 per person in work; this basically means that the government are paying people to work for a minimum of 6 months, minimum wage at 25 hours per week, rather than the employer having to pay them. This gives the employer a chance to employ somebody for 6 months! The fund is run by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in partnership with the Department for Communities and Local Government.
