We are pleased to announce that WYG has been awarded a new contract worth up to €5.8m to support the Polish Government’s initiative to help the unemployed.
This new contract will be delivered over a series of planned actions, supporting the Silesian Labour Office, in eight districts of this industrial region. The first stage of this programme is scheduled to be delivered over the next 18 months. Under the contract, we will provide short term training and initial assistance to the unemployed.
Paul Hamer, Chief Executive Officer of WYG, said: “I am delighted to announce this contract win, particularly as it is for such a worthwhile cause. This is one of the first of a number of similar projects under the overall programme which are expected to be tendered by the regional labour offices financed through the Labour Ministry in Poland. The contract award demonstrates that government and EU funds are again starting to flow following the recent hiatus in spending. WYG is very well placed to take advantage of future growth opportunities in Poland.”
