Government Incentives For Hiring & Training Staff

Australian Programs for Hiring and Training

If you're willing to move to a new hire new employees or train your existing staff, you may find financial incentives that make increasing your personnel within reach. Governments utilize such incentives as wage subsidies, job grants and payroll rebates to encourage businesses to create jobs in their city and state.

Who is eligible for Wage Subsidy Programs

One common requirement among all these kinds of incentive programs is the creation of a specified number of jobs at a determined salary within a set timeframe. These programs are designed to encourage and support the creation of jobs for recent high school graduates, disabled people, apprentices, and internships for recent graduates.

What type of incentives are offered?

Some programs provide financial funding to encourage business owners to create long-term employment opportunities, especially with regards to unemployed individuals and post-secondary graduates. Other programs offer wage subsidies to eligible employers in exchange for employers providing job experiences to post-secondary graduates or unemployed individuals. These programs can cover part or all of their salaries for up to one year.
