Have you considered hiring an apprentice? If so, this may be the time to take action as there’s a 50% wage subsidy available.

If you need help with this process, the below email I received from Golden West Apprenticeships is sure to interest you.

“I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the Federal Government’s Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements wage subsidy, which provides a 50% wage subsidy, up to $7,000 per quarter, for new apprentices and trainees who commence on or after 5th October 2020.
There are only 100,000 places available across all of Australia.  
Now is the time to take on a new apprentice or trainee, and Golden West is here is help you find the right person for your role.   View job ready candidates through our Apprentice Finder platform today – there is no sign up required.
