Queensland Back to Work Program

The Queensland Government’s Back to Work program is open for applications.

Since 2016, this program has been providing Queensland employers with the confidence to hire unemployed jobseekers, helping to change lives and improve businesses along the way. And at a time when jobs have never been more important it’s good to know that the Back to Work program has successfully helped connect more than 24,400 unemployed Queenslanders with jobs.

Through the program eligible employers can access support payments of up to $20,000 when they hire jobseekers who have experienced a period of unemployment.

The program is available throughout regional Queensland and in some areas of South East Queensland. Eligibility criteria apply and applications are currently open until 30 June 2021.
