Cornwall Council Press Release 30th July 2009

Over half a million pounds for unemployed young people in Cornwall Page 1 of 2 Over half a million pounds for unemployed young people in Cornwall Last updated: 30/07/2009 More than half a million pounds is being made available to help unemployed young people in Cornwall. The money will help over 80 people get back into work at a time of great economic difficulties. Cornwall Council led the successful bid for the cash which is part of a £1 billion government initiative. All of the jobs created will also be of benefit to the community in areas such as recycling and the creative industries. Some of the county’s leading employers, such as the Eden Project, have already signed up to the scheme. Carolyn Rule, Cornwall Council cabinet member for the economy and regeneration, said: “This is fantastic news for Cornwall. An investment of this size will have a real and positive impact on young people in the county. “These are tough times for youngsters out looking for jobs and we need to do everything we can to help them and to find long term solutions. “The team at Cornwall Council is delighted to see such a substantial sum of money coming into the county and will now be working to secure more possible funding later in the year.” The money will come from the Future Jobs Fund, a £1 billion government initiative to create jobs for unemployed 18- and people in unemployment hotspots. Jobs created under the banner of the Cornwall Works For Future Jobs scheme have to last for at least six months, be for at least 25 hours per week, be paid to at least national minimum wage level and be of benefit to the community. Every job must be new and in addition to the current workforce. Glenn Caplin, Cornwall’s Council’s interim head of economic development, said: “This is one of a range of initiatives being pursued by Cornwall Council that will help the employment prospects of our young people at a time when new job creation is vital.” The 83 jobs in creative industries, citizen’s advice, environmental stewardship and other areas, will be available from October. The positions will include 20 jobs at environmental company Rezolve, working in renewables and sustainability, and five jobs at the Eden Project. Peter Stewart, Eden's campaigns director, said: “We pride ourselves on employing local people. This latest news is very and we look forward to working with Cornwall Council in creating some great opportunities for young people to come and work here at Eden.” 19/08/2009
