The Fife Youth Job Contract (FYJC) is the Fife Council response to high levels of unemployment within the 16-24 year old age group. Fife Council is seeking to deliver support to help this group gain and sustain employment.

Clients must be unemployed or at risk of not achieving a positive destination and not on the DWP Work Programme.
