To be eligible for a wage subsidy, your business must:
- Be a legal entity with an Australian Business Number
- Employ an eligible job seeker (speak to your local provider)
- Have not previously received a wage subsidy for the same job seeker
- Not be an Australian, state or territory government agency

Bring some energy to your workplace and kick start a young person's career.
Youth Jobs PaTH is a flexible new approach to youth employment. It is designed to support young people to gain the skills and work experience they need to get and keep a job. It also supports employers to host internship placements and provides them with incentives when they take on a young person. Youth Jobs PaTH has three elements: Prepare - Trial - Hire.
Prepare ► Youth Jobs PaTH helps prepare young people aged 15-24 with the right skills to become job ready. Employability Skills Training (EST) gives young people the opportunity to enhance their employability through targeted training. Participating in training will help young people
understand the expectations of employers in both the recruitment process and as a new employee in the workplace.
Trial ► Trial provides young people with voluntary internship opportunities to help them gain real work experience. Employers can trial a young person in an internship for between 4 and 12 weeks to see how they fit into the team and if they are suitable for ongoing employment. Interns are unpaid by the business and receive a fortnightly incentive paid by the government.
The business receives an upfront payment of $1000 in recognition of the costs of hosting the internship. Additionally, the intern is covered by insurance paid by the Government through the Department of Employment.
BEST Employment will provide support to you and the intern throughout the internship.
Hire ► Hire provides an incentive of up to $10,000 paid over six months to employers who hire an eligible young job seeker. All wage subsidies will be made simpler, and can be packaged with Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Programme payments, to encourage employers to create apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities.
The job can be full time, part time or casual but must be an ongoing position and provide an average of at least 20 hours per week over the six month wage subsidy agreement.
