future jobs fund scope and key criteria
Future Jobs Fund – scope and key criteria

      • 100,000 for young people
      • 50,000 in unemployment hotspots
  • Expect to create at least 10,000 “green jobs”
  • And we want social enterprises to create at least 15,000 jobs
  • Strong preference for partnership bids; involving social enterprises and third sector
  • But we expect majority of bids to be led by LAs, sub-region, city region or other local partnerships

  • The work done will benefit local communities; and
  • The work will be under way quickly.
secondary criteria
Secondary Criteria
  • Unit cost to the Fund, in terms of both:
    • the average cost per job of each bid; and
    • the extent to which other funding streams are aligned to support the proposal, e.g. Working Neighbourhoods Fund in England and Deprived Areas Fund in Scotland and Wales where available;
  • The extent to which the job would support an individual’s move into permanent employment, through:
    • the potential of the job itself to lead to permanent employment; or
    • the inclusion of accredited training, development opportunities and job search activity within the bid; and
  • Providing confidence that the jobs will be delivered successfully, e.g. a track record of delivering jobs of this type or support to young people.
