The Queensland Government has announced that applications are now open for eligible employers to access the Queensland Government's Back to Work Employer Support Payments.
Our $100 million Back to Work regional jobs package specifically targets job seekers and employers outside the southeast corner of Queensland and includes payments of $10,000 for employers who hire an unemployed worker, rising to $15,000 for the long-term unemployed.
This payment is to give employers the confidence to employ and supports Queensland’s regions.
Sarina Russo Job Access encourages you to apply.
Further details about the support payment, including eligibility criteria, are available on the Back to Work website.
Back to Work Teams are also being implemented across the state to help employers and job seekers navigate the system and help connect local employers with job seekers in the regional centres.
Ten employer and job seeker officers are already on the ground across the state from the South West to Far North Queensland.
