South East Queensland employers have up to 30,000 reasons to hire a young person with the Queensland Government’s expansion of their $20,000 Youth Boost Payment in combination with the Federal Government’s Youth Wage Subsidy of up to $10,000* - Click to Register
The $20,000 Youth Boost Payment* is available to employers who hire a 15-24 year old jobseeker for at least 35 hours per week between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2018. Eligible part-time jobs attract 75% of the full support payment.
A $15,000 Employer Support Payment* is also available from the Queensland Government for employers who hire the long-term unemployed (52 weeks +) with much the same eligibility criteria as Youth Boost Payment.
Under jobactive’s new ‘employer focussed’ model, a vast pool of job ready candidates now attracts a wage subsidy*. Gone are the days of wage subsidies being reserved for only the very disadvantaged jobseekers - jobactive wage subsidies* are available for:
- Youth (15 - 29 years) - Up to $10,000**;
- Mature aged (over 50) - $10,000;
- Indigenous, parents returning to work, and long-term unemployed - $6,500.
