Tasmanian Jobs Programme

For: 

Tasmanian businesses that provide jobs to people who have been unemployed for at least six months may be able to get financial assistance from the Australian Government.

The Tasmanian Jobs Programme offers an incentive to employers who provide full time, ongoing work to eligible job seekers.

The programme began on 1 January 2014 and will support up to 2000 Tasmanian jobs.

The programme will provide much needed support to the Tasmanian labour market by assisting employers to expand their business and employ new staff.

The Tasmanian Jobs Programme is a part of the Government’s Economic Growth Plan for Tasmania.

Information for employers on how to apply for the incentive payment is available.

General information about the programme is also available.

What funding is available?

A one-off incentive payment of $3,250 (GST inclusive) will be paid to an employer at the end of six months for each eligible job seeker continuously employed full time over that period.
