Expanding the Plan for Jobs

At Conservative conference is has been announced that there will be a £500 million expansion to the Plan for Jobs, including a new package of measures to help more people get the opportunity of well-paid work as we level up the country.

  • Over a year ago, the government launched the Plan For Jobs – an ambitious plan to help people back into work, earn more and gain the right skills to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow as we recover from the pandemic.
  • The plan is working – unemployment has fallen for seven consecutive months, we are forecasted to have the fastest growth in the G7 and job vacancies are at record highs – but we want to keep up the pace.
  • That is why the government is extending many of the schemes in our Plan for Jobs, backed by half a billion pounds, including the Kickstart scheme; the JETS scheme; our Youth Offer and for businesses to hire incentives, as well as introducing a new package of measures so that we help as many people as possible as our economic recovery continues.
  • Supporting, protecting and creating jobs helps vulnerable people in particular by providing them with opportunities for well-paid work as we build back better and level up the country.
