Back to Work Program

The Queensland Government’s Back to Work program is open for applications!

Through the program eligible employers in regional Queensland and some areas of South East Queensland can access support payments of up to $20,000 when they hire jobseekers who have experienced a period of unemployment.

Right now Queensland workers and businesses are facing a challenge like no other. The Queensland Government is delivering a range of programs to support Queenslanders and businesses whose employment has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Information about the support for jobseekers can be found on the Queensland Government website, with information for businesses available on the Business Queensland website.

Applications are currently open until 30 June 2021. Eligibility criteria apply.
