Creating new jobs for young people could save your business up to £4,267 

For a limited time only, funding and support up to the value of £4,267 is available to growing businesses in the Newtown area who are creating new, sustainable job opportunities for young people.

Employers are being advised to apply to the Welsh Government’s Jobs Growth Wales (JGW) programme over the next three months in preparation for their new year recruitment drive

As one of the Wales’ leading work-based learning providers, Cambrian Training is urging employers to waste no time in applying for this funding support. 

Cambrian Training’s Andrew Thompson is their dedicated Business Engagement Officer in the Newtown area, who is ready to advise and help employers complete the JGW application form, if required.

For more information, email Andrew at or phone 01938 555893 opt.4.

JGW helps growing businesses across Wales to create sustainable job opportunities for unemployed and job ready young people between the ages of 16-24 years old.

New recruits are paid at least the national minimum wage for a minimum of 25 hours a week and JGW reimburses half of their wage cost for the first six months.

Supported by the European Social Fund, JGW is designed to provide young, work-ready people with a valuable opportunity to kick start their career.

To receive support, a Newtown area business must create a real job and not a six-month work placement or temporary cover and must have traded for more than six months in the private or third sector in Wales.

All jobs created must be sustainable and employers must be committed to retaining their new employee beyond the six-month period. Don’t forget, if they’ve impressed you enough to earn a full-time job, imagine what they can achieve for your business with further training and skills support, such as an apprenticeship.

Because Cambrian Training recognises that recruiting new staff demands time and commitment, employers will be supported by the company, as managing agent, allowing them to focus on getting the best out of their new employee from day one.

To make the recruitment process even easier, Cambrian Training lists all vacancies on the JGW section of the Careers Wales website and promotes them on its social media channels. Work ready young people can then apply online.

To apply for the job opportunities on Cambrian Training’s website, visit or search #CambrianJobSearch on social media. 

Cambrian Training specialises in work-based apprenticeship training in hospitality, food and drink manufacturing, sustainable resource management, business and administration, team leading and management, AAT accounting, financial planning services, customer service and retail skills, equine care and health, social care and early years.

Employers interested in creating a job opportunity must first complete an Expression of Interest form at 

One business that has benefited from JGW is Confederate Chemicals in Newtown, which is currently trying to recruit its second JGW employee to become a technical service chemist. 

Operations manager John Hextall explained “Confederate Chemicals has had a very positive experience with the first JGW post we advertised two years ago.  We had a new job in our laboratory and took on Nia-Faith Williams, a school leaver, who has turned out to be an excellent hire and is contributing to both the chemical and sales teams. 

“In addition, we received funding of about £3,000 to help offset the employment costs. I would recommend the programme to any employer looking to create a sustainable new job aimed at someone under 25 years of age.”
