About the Program
** The Jobs Plus program offers support from the NSW Government to Australian and international companies who are looking to start or expand business operations in New South Wales.
** If you want to enter or expand your business in NSW by starting a project that will create jobs, Jobs Plus could help reduce the costs and financial risks for your company, while strengthening the local economy.
** Jobs Plus is open to businesses who create at least a net growth of 30 new full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs as part of a business project in NSW before 30 June 2024.
One FTE job is equal to a ‘standard working week’ of 35 hours for ongoing roles. Full time roles can claim 1 FTE and part-time roles can claim a proportion of 1 FTE on a pro-rata basis.
** Companies must apply for Jobs Plus and start hiring new staff before 30 June 2022. All new staff must also live, and be paid, in NSW.
** The Jobs Plus program is open until 30 June 2022, or until support is fully allocated.
** Companies must start hiring staff before 30 June 2022.
** At least 30 new FTE staff must be hired and onboarded by 30 June 2024.
What Projects Qualify For Jobs Plus?
Your company should be capable of running a successful business venture or project that will create 30 new jobs in NSW to qualify for support. A ‘project’ is defined as planned business activities with capital investment leading to job creation with an overall increase of at least 30 permanent, ongoing FTE employees before 30 June 2024.
Examples of eligible projects include activities that invest in equipment and facilities. These include:
** relocating your business operation from out-of-state or internationally to NSW
** establishing or adding a production line to your existing NSW business
** developing a new product or service
** transferring business activities that are currently performed by your company overseas to NSW.
