Ultimately it is successful businesses that create jobs. Government’s focus is to drive sustainable economic growth, which in turn can foster the business success that will generate the jobs of the future.

The Government have also invested nearly £5 billion since November 2008 to help those on out-of-work benefits take up the jobs created by businesses. This includes a substantial package of education, training and employment measures for young people.

This help includes the Future Jobs Fund which is funded until March 2011 and it will create at least 100,000 jobs for young people in this time.
