Young people to start in your business

PaTH stands for Prepare, Trial, Hire. Youth jobs PaTH helps employers find young, talented candidates. Both employers and your potential employees are paid for connecting through the internship.

By having a supported period to try a new employee, you are able to see if the person is right for you and the job is right for them.

Programs and services for job seekers

Financial support

Employers are financially supported for hosting an internship, receiving $1000 for offering a young person a work trial.

Trial period

The trial needs to last between 4 and 12 weeks, enough time to see if they fit in to the team and are suitable for ongoing employment.

Payment for employees

The employee receives $200 per fortnight through the program in place of wages and is covered by insurance through the Australian Government’s Department of Jobs and Small Business.

Further support

If you agree to hire your candidate, further financial support of up to $10,000 is available to you in order to support them as they start work.
