LOCAL employers need to work collaboratively with the Executive to provide work placements and opportunities to support our young unemployed people, said Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry.

Dr Farry was addressing employers at a breakfast seminar in the Titanic Signature building, aimed at promoting the new programme to tackle youth unemployment entitled Youth Employment Scheme (YES).

The Minister called on employers to get involved in the scheme by providing sector relevant work experience opportunities which would be supported by employer subsidies.

Coleraine employers are urged to get in contact with their local DEL Employer Contact Manager, Roberta Donaghy on 028 2563 7104 or at for further details of the scheme.
