1. Does Job Placement Ltd offer any kind of subsidies for employers?

Every situation is assessed on an individual basis The maximum we can offer is up to $1500 over 13 weeks if you are working a minimum of 8 hours per week over that 13 weeks. This subsidy is only paid once to an employer per client and is limited by the earnings during the claim period. This subsidy is to assist the employer with low productivity and training whilst you are learning the job.

3. Can I work without it affecting my pension/will I lose my pension?

Centrelink have a sliding scale which determines the amount of your pension depending on your earnings from work. You could be earning a wage and be on a pension until you earn a sufficient income from your wage that you are no longer eligible for the pension. Contact Centrelink on 13 28 50 for further advice about what the current earning rates are before it starts to affect your pension or support payment.

4. Do I have to work full time?

No. It is your choice. Job Placement Ltd will assist you to secure full time, part time or casual work depending on your individual situation. If you choose Option A and work part time your pension will be deducted proportionately to how much you earn. This is regulated by Centrelink. If you choose Option B and work full time 38 hours or more per week your pension payment will cease and after a period of time you will need to reapply for the pension.
