Trial a young person in an internship placement
The internship is an opportunity to see how a young person fits in your team and if they are suitable for employment within your business. You should be confident that if the intern is the right fit, you have a reasonable prospect of being able to give them a job.
Instead of receiving a wage from employers the government will provide interns with an additional $200 a fortnight on top of their income support payment.
The intern needs to be structured and supervised, providing the intern with 30-50 hours of work experience per fortnight for up to 12 weeks.
