The Back to Work – South East Queensland (Back to Work SEQ) program is a $27.5 million initiative designed to give businesses the confidence to employ long-term unemployed, unemployed youth (aged 15-24 years) and mature aged workers (aged 55 years or over) in South East Queensland. This program aims to facilitate unemployed jobseekers into the labour market and support them to create a strong connection to the labour force. Payments of up to $20,000 are available for businesses that employ eligible jobseekers.
Employer Support and Youth Boost Payments will be available for employers who hire an eligible jobseeker between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2018 (subject to the availability of funds).
