Description:

The Australian Government is subsidising 1,000 new employment opportunities for Community Development Program (CDP) participants in remote Australia to support economic development.

Tranche One of the 1,000 Jobs Package (the Package) grant funding round provided an initial opportunity for up to 200 new jobs. Tranche One closed on 30 December 2019. Tranche Two of the Package opened on 31 December 2019 and will close on 30 April 2021, or earlier if the 1,000 jobs are fully allocated.

Tranche Two of the 1,000 Jobs Package has a General stream and Youth Engagement Jobs (YEJ) stream. The General stream is open to any industry, if the proposed job and employer are eligible. The YEJ stream supports employers to create jobs to work with people aged 24 years and younger to strengthen their engagement with their culture and community and/or promote mental health and social wellbeing. 

The Package provides a subsidy over two years and is made up of a wage subsidy payment and retention bonuses. The YEJ stream attracts additional payments, including a commencement payment and employee bonus payments. 

Positions will be subsidised up to the minimum wage, and can be full-time or part-time. Positions will be subsidised for a minimum of 15 hours per week on average, up to 38 hours per week, with the subsidy tapering in the second year. 

Employers are responsible for topping up employees’ wages to the relevant award. Employers are also responsible for providing employee entitlements, such as superannuation and paid leave. 

Eligibility:

All applicants must meet all eligibility criteria outlined under section 4 of the 1,000 Jobs Package Tranche Two Grant Opportunity Guidelines.

Applicants applying for YEJ positions must also meet all eligibility criteria outlined under section 5 of the 1,000 Jobs Package Tranche Two Grant Opportunity Guidelines.
