Wage subsidies could be available for your business
Depending on the type of business you operate, you may be eligible to access government funded subsidies, designed to help cover the cost of training new employees, allow young job seekers to enter the workplace, or assist with the employment of adult job seekers.
Wage subsidies can cover up to $10,000 of your new employee’s wage.
To apply, simply check with your Employment Plus Consultant if you are eligible to receive a subsidy, and they will guide you through the process.
