Wage subsidies to support businesses

Wage subsidies of up to $20,000 per employee are available now, to support businesses to hire new staff or increase hours for current workers.

If you are a Victorian employer, the Jobs Victoria Fund can financially support you to employ people who have been most affected by the economic impacts of the pandemic – by hiring new staff or increasing hours for existing employees.

Jobs Victoria wage subsidies of up to $20,000 are available to meet the costs associated with employing someone for 12 months.

The Jobs Victoria Fund eligibility criteria changed on 16 November 2021 so that more businesses and employees are eligible.
