Need extra help?
Do you employ staff? Did you know that you may be able to hire staff and receive some funds to help cover the cost? Under the new ‘employer focused’ jobactive model there is now a vast pool of job ready candidates who attract a wage subsidy. Gone are the days of wage subsidies being reserved for only the very disadvantaged job-seekers. Today, the majority of jobactive candidates attract a generous wage subsidy: Over 50s ($10,000); Youth 15 - 29 ($6,500 - $10,000); Indigenous ($6,500); Parents returning to work ($6,500); and The longer-term unemployed ($6,500).
Employers should maximise their employee return on investment and implement a wage subsidy strategy to tap into job ready workers and reduce business costs. The first step is to make contact with their local jobactive provider who can confirm key eligibility requirements (including employing the staff member for an average of 20 hours per week, over a 6 month period).
