2020/21 Wage Subsidy Programme

Wage Subsidies available for local employers to recruit an Inverclyde resident.

Funded by Inverclyde Council, local 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.  Applications must be made at least one week prior to the anticipated start date of employment in order for assessment to be undertaken and notification of the outcome issued to the employer.

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

How to Apply

Application forms, along with Candidate evidence paperwork, should be submitted to: employabilityandskills@inverclyde.gov.uk.

Please note, approval of a Wage Subsidy is at the sole discretion of the Council.  With a limited number of subsidies available, no guarantee is given that an employer application will be approved, however we will aim to get a decision to you within one week of submission of all required paperwork.
