Be a JobMaker and Help Beat Youth Unemployment

Updated: Nov 10

The JobMaker scheme is a new Wage Subsidy Incentive from the Australian Government in response to the COVID-19 downturn, promoting the employment of young job seekers.


JobMaker Hiring Credits are available to business owners for each new eligible employee hired.


As a business owner, hiring an eligible person will attract $200 per week for new employees aged between 16 and 29, and $100 per week for new employees aged between 30 and 35, for 12-months. This can total approximately $10,000 per year for each new eligible employee you hire.


Castle's tailored recruitment service can find talented, qualified and loyal job seekers that are the right fit, and provide you with access to a pool of JobMaker eligible candidates.
