Youth Works Recruitment Grant Funding

Youth Works - Developing fresh, new talent in the city

Youth Works gives you the opportunity to build the skills of a young person within your business and invest in your future workforce. With the Department for Work and Pensions Kickstart Scheme coming to an end shortly, Coventry City Council have introduced a recruitment grant funding opportunity for local businesses to access (subject to eligibility).

£3000 grants are available to employers who recruit candidates registered on our Your Vision Your Future programme and are paid in 6-monthly instalments of £500. This funding can be used in any way that will support your new employee. For example, subsidising wages or paying towards training and qualifications.
