The National Skills Academy for Sport and Active Leisure has announced the creation of an additional 3000 new employment opportunities for young, long-term unemployed people in the sport and active leisure sector.
This is in response to recent unemployment figures which show you are almost three times more likely to be unemployed if you between 18-24.
The new jobs are open to long-term unemployed young people and will guarantee training and employment for six months. The National Skills Academy has worked with employers to ensure that many of these jobs will lead to long-term careers in the sector.
Some of the employers who will be offering jobs through the Future Jobs Fund include Premier Sport, Fit for Sport, The Amateur Swimming Association and Transforming A Generation (TAG).
