The Jobs Victoria Fund is providing $250 million in wage subsidies to help businesses with  the aim to support at least 10,000 jobs.

Your business may be eligible for a subsidy of up to $20,000 to employ someone affected by the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Employers can register their business on the Jobs Victoria online hub to post jobs and connect with people looking for work. The service is free to use and provides a shortlist of candidates with the skills and experience you're looking for.

Jobs Victoria Advocates are also helping connect jobseekers with the right services, training and support. Jobs Victoria Careers Counsellors will provide personalised guidance to find work, while Jobs Victoria Mentors will work closely with those who need extra support to get them ready for work.

To find out more, contact Jobs Victoria on 1300 208 575 on weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
