Creating a Job with the Nottingham Jobs Fund


The Nottingham Jobs Fund (NJF) helps you to create jobs and Apprenticeships for Nottingham City residents who are aged 18 or older and currently unemployed.

We work closely with local businesses to encourage new jobs by offering a grant of £2500 towards the cost of creating a placement. An additional £500 is available if you employ a resident who has been unemployed for 6 months or more and has been appointed with the support of the NJF Team. This additional grant of £500 is payable after the employee has been in post for 12 months.

To be eligible, a job created must:

  • Be in addition to the existing structure of your company
  • Be guaranteed for twelve months
  • Be for 30 hours per week
  • Pay at least the National Minimum Wage
  • Have the liklehood to become a sustainable job after the placement

To find out more contact the NJF team at nottinghamjobsfund@nottinghamcity.gov.uk or call 0115 876 4508 to request an application pack.
