£10m scheme to make 2,000 jobs for Kent young unemployed

More than £10m is being invested in Kent to help create almost 2,000 jobs, under a new scheme unveiled by communities secretary John Denham, reports the BBC website.

The money will be used to target unemployment hotspots across the county, and will offer young unemployed people a position for six months.

People who find employment under the new programme will be expected to perform as well as any other employee.

The initiative is seen as an opportunity for young people to gain experience and some new skills.
