Where bidding organisations fail to meet the Future Jobs Fund assessment criteria they are provided with feedback and offered further support from DWP, Jobcentre Plus and the Government Office network to enable them to improve and submit their bids. As a result of this process, so far, 38 of the initially rejected organisations have subsequently successful.
A total of 272 bids to the Future Jobs Fund have been accepted, which will create up to 110,000 Future Jobs Fund jobs.
We encourage partnership bids but would not necessarily rule out bids for fewer than 30 jobs.
So far, 18 of the 272 accepted bids are expected to create fewer than 30 jobs.
