State labour offices signed some 203 agreements with representatives of municipalities up to the end of March this year. Based on these contracts the local governments should create 275 new jobs within a national programme focused on youth unemployed, the SITA newswire reported.

The total value of subsidies paid to municipalities to incentivise them to hire new employees was €1.02 million. The European Union has allocated €20 million to support similar job creation.

In addition to this, by the end of March labour offices had signed 1,929 agreements worth over €22.5 million, creating 4,222 new jobs within another national programme focused on joblessness of young people and aimed at small and medium-sized companies. The total amount allocated for this project stands at €50 million, SITA wrote.

A third project is based on “selected active tools of the labour market” in Slovakia, except for Bratislava Region, such as contributions to launching a new business, contributions to training disadvantaged jobseekers or contributions to graduate work experience. By the end of February labour offices had signed more than 13,600 such agreements based on which 20,700 new jobs are supposed to be created. The total amount allocated for this area is €50 million, SITA reported.
