To participate, you will need to check your eligibility, register, and nominate eligible employees

The JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme is an incentive for businesses to employ additional young job seekers aged 16–35 years.
Eligible employers can access a JobMaker Hiring Credit of up to $10,400 for each eligible additional employee they hire between 7 October 2020 and 6 October 2021.
If you and your new employees are eligible, you can register and then claim JobMaker Hiring Credit payments for 12 months for each new job filled with an eligible additional employee.
To be eligible to receive JobMaker Hiring Credit payments for a JobMaker period, you must:
• check you are an eligible employer.
• employ eligible additional employees.
• register for the JobMaker Hiring Credit before your first claim.
• satisfy the headcount increase condition.
• satisfy the payroll increase condition.

Employers that are not eligible to claim the JobMaker Hiring Credit may be able to claim other support payments from the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. For more information on available options from this Department, please visit
