2018/19 Graduate Wage Subsidy Programme

Inverclyde Council has a limited number of wage subsidy places available to Inverclyde companies wanting to hire a local young person who has recently graduated.

The wage subsidy is for 50% of the actual hourly rate, payable to a maximum of £9,000 or 52 weeks, whichever comes first.   Full details of the Programme are shown on the attached information sheet. 

If  an employer has an eligible person in mind, the application form should be completed, with supporting evidence attached, and submitted to

Lynsey Buchan, Regeneration & Planning Service, Inverclyde Council, Municipal Buildings, Clyde Square, Greenock, PA15 1LY (lynsey.buchan@inverclyde.gov.uk).

However, if an employer does not have an eligible person in mind, they should contact Kevin Millar, Senior Employer Engagement Worker at Inverclyde Community Development Trust (ICDT) Ltd, who can provide support in identifying suitable candidates.  Kevin can be contacted on 01475 553337, kevin.millar@the-trust.org.uk.
