Tameside Employers Cash Incentive

Tameside Employers Cash Incentive

Tameside Employers: claim a cash incentive and make a difference to Youth Unemployment  

How does it work?
If you take on an 18-24 year old through Jobcentre Plus, who has been claiming benefits for at least six months, for 16 hours or more each week in a job lasting more than 26 weeks then you could claim a wage incentive.
 
What wage incentive could I claim?
For full-time work of 30 hours or more a week -
£2,275.

For part time work between 16 and 29 hours a week - £1,137.50.

I don’t currently have any vacancies can I still make a difference?
By offering a work experience placement you will give a young unemployed person the chance to gain valuable work experience, improve their cv and skills.
The wage incentive is still available if you take on a young person from the Work Programme, delivered by the private, public and voluntary sector to help individuals at risk of becoming long-term unemployed find work. Recruiting a young disabled person from the Work Choice programme also attracts a wage incentive. 

Wage incentives are available to private, voluntary and community sectors and social enterprise employers
