Information for employers
The JobMaker Hiring Credit is for employers
The JobMaker Hiring Credit recently opened for employers and we would like to share some information with our clients to make you aware of this opportunity.
The scheme applies to employees starting employment between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021.
It is a scheme that gives employers an incentive to take on additional young job seekers.
It is a payment made to eligible employers:
- for each eligible additional employee hired
- to help subsidise the cost of employing eligible additional employees for up to 12 months.
Eligible employers will receive payments of:
- up to $200 a week – for each eligible employee aged 16 to 29 years old
- up to $100 a week – for each eligible employee aged 30 to 35 years old
Not-for-profit organisations can receive payments for new positions they create between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021, provided both the employer and employee meet eligibility criteria.

Please note that our office will close at 2PM on 24 December 2020 and will reopen on 4 January 2021. Wishing you and your family a happy and safe Christmas – we look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
