jobactive PaTH

jobactive PaTH is a flexible new approach to youth employment. As part of PaTH, employers can trial a young person in an internship placement from 1 April 2017. Businesses that take on an intern can benefit from the opportunity to see what a young person can do and how they fit into the team, while providing them with real work experience. Businesses will also receive an upfront payment of $1000 to help cover the costs of hosting an internship placement.
