Jobs Growth Wales

We have now successfully placed all of our young people into work through the Jobs Growth Wales Programme. The 46 young people who have taken part will now benefit from 25 weeks of paid work in local businesses in Monmouthshire and Newport.

We will be keeping track of our 46, and will be posting their progress on this page as the programme progresses.

What is Jobs Growth Wales?

Jobs Growth Wales is a Welsh Government programme which aims to reduce the number of young unemployed people in Wales. Melin has worked with the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and Welsh Government to deliver sustainable employment opportunities for 16-24 year olds in Newport and Monmouthshire. 

People taking part in Jobs Growth Wales will receive: 26 weeks of paid work, payment of age specific national minimum wage, a minimum 25 hour working week, and a reference. They will also have the chance to gain confidence and motivation, learn new skills, complete qualifications and receive support from our Melin Works staff.
