Hiring and training new workers in the Latrobe Valley?
Up to $9,000 employer funding is now available. *

If you’re hiring a new apprentice or trainee, we can help you sign them up and assess your eligibility for Commonwealth Government incentives.

In addition to these incentives, the Victorian Government’s Back to Work Scheme is now providing the following funding for eligible employers in the Latrobe Valley:

$5,000

is potentially available for eligible employers who hire a new full-time worker who was previously unemployed or retrenched.

$4,000

is potentially available as an additional incentive to employers who provide accredited training to these eligible employees.

Employers may potentially also be eligible for $3,750 for hiring a new part-time worker who was previously unemployed or retrenched.

Support will be available for eligible employers who hire people who are unemployed and live in the Latrobe Valley, including Latrobe City and the Shires of Baw Baw and Wellington.
