2020/21 Wage Subsidy Programme

Wage Subsidies available for employers to recruit an Inverclyde resident.

Funded by Inverclyde Council, employers can claim for 50% of the actual hourly pay rate, payable to a maximum of £6,500 or 52 weeks, whichever comes first.  Jobs must be for a 52 week period or more, be in addition to the existing workforce and must not replace a redundant post.  Normally posts cannot be filled prior to authorisation of the wage subsidy, however due to Covid 19 we are able to offer a wage subsidy to eligible applications where the employment start date was from 1st April 2020 onwards.

Full details of the Programme are shown on the attached information sheet.
