A SCHEME aimed at getting jobs for young people in South Tyneside has found work for more than 80.

The initiative, launched in April, provides cash to small and medium-sized firms in the borough towards paying the salary of workers aged between 18 and 24 who have been unemployed for more than three months.

South Tyneside Council leader, Coun Iain Malcolm, envisaged getting 100 young people back into the workplace by the end of the year, and the latest figures show that 84 have found employment.
