In a promising development, Futureworks, a dynamic component of Pembrokeshire County Council's Economic Development and Regeneration service, has been making waves since April 2023.

Their innovative project, Skills Futures, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, has successfully equipped more than 100 individuals with vocational training and qualifications, igniting a beacon of hope in the community.

But that's not all - Futureworks is gearing up to take it a step further by ushering in a fresh era of growth. They are poised to forge 50 brand-new paid work placement opportunities, designed to empower individuals by honing their skills and expertise in real-world settings.

Are you ready to be a part of this transformative journey?

The Paid Work Placement initiative extends a lifeline to those currently seeking employment. Employers have the chance to contribute to the personal and professional growth of individuals by offering invaluable work experiences that harness and cultivate their skills in a supportive workplace environment.

The initiative is committed to creating entirely new positions and opening doors to exciting career prospects, ensuring that individuals remain employed long after the wage incentives conclude.

Funding under this scheme provides for the National Minimum Wage according to the individual's age, employer National Insurance, and the minimum automatic enrolment contributions for a workweek spanning 16 to 40 hours, over a period of up to 10 weeks.
