    Looking for staff? Trial before you hire.

    16 May 2017

    Youth Jobs PaTH (Prepare-Trial-Hire) is a new Australian Government program that makes it easier for you to find and recruit the right young person for your business.

    As part of Youth Jobs PaTH, you can host a young person aged 17–24 in an internship placement to find out if they are a good fit for your team.

    PaTH internships are supervised work experience and can be between 4 and 12 weeks.

    Interns are unpaid by your business. The Australian Government will provide the young person with $200 per fortnight on top of their income support payment, and cover their insurance during the internship.

    If you take part, you will receive a payment of $1,000 to help cover the costs of hosting an intern. If you decide to employ your intern, you may be eligible for a wage subsidy of up to $6,500 or $10,000 (GST inclusive).
