A JOBS fund has been launched to create 100 new jobs for long term unemployed young people in Tower Hamlets to help them get a first step on the careers ladder.

The Future Jobs Fund will give jobseekers aged between 18 and 24, who have been out of work for more than 39 weeks a six month paid placement and the chance to study for a relevant qualification.

The scheme has been funded by a £650,000 Government grant as part of a joint bid made by four of the Olympic Host Boroughs.

The council will also contribute another £273,000 towards the scheme from the Working Neighbourhood Fund.

Applicants for the programme will be referred by Jobcentre Plus and the first 15 placements will start mid-November at Whitechapel Arts Gallery, Tower Hamlets Homes, NHS Tower Hamlets and within Tower Hamlets Council's transport section.
