Support if you employ someone with a disability

Disability support: Job Introduction Scheme

The Job Introduction Scheme (JIS) is a job trial lasting 13 weeks. It offers both the employer and the person with the disability the opportunity to try work and see if the requirements of the job and the skills of the disabled person match.

For the duration of the job trial, you may be able to receive a weekly grant towards the cost of employing a person with a disability, provided that they receive the same terms and conditions as any other employee in your business.

It doesn't matter if you take on the employee on a full-time or part-time basis, but the job should be permanent and expected to last at least 32 weeks.
