On 24 September 2012, the French railways group SNCF announced the recruitment of 500 young workers in the framework of the new initiative by the Parliament on "jobs for the future". 

The aim of the “jobs for the future” scheme is to create employment solutions and open up access to a qualification for under-qualified or unqualified young people who cannot gain a foothold in the labour market. Priority will be given to young people aged between 16 and 25 who have no qualifications, particularly in urban or rural areas most affected by unemployment. The young workers may stay with the company for three years, in the framework of this scheme.
