JobsPlus grant for Employers

JobsPlus is a employer incentive which encourages and rewards employers who employ jobseekers on the Live Register.

The Department of Social Protection pays the incentive to the employer monthly in arrears over a 2-year period. It provides 2 levels of regular cash payments:

  • A payment of €7,500 for each person recruited who has been unemployed for more than 12 but less than 24 months – see ‘JobsPlus for young people’ below
  • A payment of €10,000 for each person recruited who has been unemployed for more than 24 months

JobsPlus Youth

Since 1 January 2015, under the JobsPlus Youth part of the scheme, the qualifying period for JobsPlus for jobseekers aged under 25 has been reduced to 4 months. It remains at 12 months for other jobseekers. Eligible young people will be given certification that they qualify for the JobsPlus subsidy and they can use this when applying for jobs.
