Did you know you can receive a wage subsidy of up to $10,000 when you hire eligible young people?
The Youth Bonus Wage Subsidy is available to businesses that hire eligible young people between 15 to 25 years of age as part of the Youth Employment Package.
The job you provide should be ongoing, for a minimum of 20 hours per week over the first six months of employment.
If you’re not sure if you’d like to offer a young person a full-time role, you can hire them on a trial basis to make sure they’re the right fit. Through the Youth Jobs PaTH internship, you can trial a young person in an internship for between 4 and 12 weeks. What’s more, employers that host an internship receive an upfront payment of $1000.
For more information about the Youth Bonus Wage Subsidy and the Youth Jobs PaTH internship, call your local KONEKT employment office on 13 11 24.
