You can apply for the wage subsidy for up to 20 full time equivalent employees depending on the size of your business.
Small and medium-sized businesses, sole traders, local councils, social enterprises, universities and not-for-profits are invited to apply.
To qualify for the subsidy you must have employed someone on or after 16 March 2021 from at least one of the priority groups outlined below:
If you are an employer interested in applying to the Jobs Victoria Fund, you must hire employees from these priority groups before you apply to the Fund and within 12 weeks of the first employee commencing.
The Fund will support employers to grow and recover while also helping Victorians looking for work.
