A NSW Government initiative to secure jobs for youth across the Hunter will also help local business that are hiring and need staff.

Employment agency APM is delivering the Youth Employment Program on behalf of the NSW Department of Industry in the Hunter and Central Coast.

APM service delivery manager Greg Hall said the program, open to those aged 15 to 24, was an important step in getting young people jobs that will also benefit  businesses. No qualifications are needed for the program, which also helps youth beat barriers to employment like mental health issues.

Mr Hall said APM would work with employers to understand employment opportunities and skills gaps.
