About this programme

The Fair Work Incentive is an employer recruitment incentive of up to £8,000 which aims to target support at unemployed people of working age with one or more barriers to work to help them gain sustainable employment (including Modern Apprenticeships).

The incentive is available to use as a contribution to the additional costs of recruiting and sustaining an eligible recruit during their first 52 weeks of employment.

What funding is available to employers?

The funding offers an employer a tiered amount of up to £8,000 over a period of 52 weeks. The amount you receive is based on the hourly rate of pay and contracted hours for each employee as shown below.

If paying the National Minimum Wage Rate:

A job of 16-20 contracted hours per week, paid at least National Minimum Wage or above £2,000
A job of 21-29 contracted hours per week, paid at least National Minimum Wage or above £4,000
A job of 30 or more contracted hours per week, paid at least National Minimum Wage or above £6,000

If paying Real Living Wage throughout the whole period of the grant, ie 52 weeks:

A job of 16-20 contracted hours per week, paid at Real Living Wage or above £4,000
A job of 21-29 contracted hours per week, paid at Real Living Wage or above £6,000
A job of 30 or more contracted hours per week, paid at Real Living Wage or above £8,000

What can the funding be used for?

The Fair Work Incentive can be used to help with the cost of recruiting and keeping a person in employment including an apprenticeship for up to 52 weeks. Costs may include wages, additional supervisory costs. initial travel to work costs, training and other job-related costs, for example to support flexible working.

How will eligible individuals be matched with jobs?

Employers can identify candidates who meet the eligibility criteria in order to fill the post they are offering.  However, the Clackmannanshire Works team will be able to provide support as and when required.

Other partners and providers may also identify individuals who would benefit from the Fair Work Incentive to help move their clients into work.

Which employers are eligible to apply?

Employers from all sectors are eligible for the Fair Work Incentive and there is no restriction on the size of the employer, but priority will be given to private small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and third sector organizations including social enterprises.

What types of job opportunities are eligible?

  • Jobs must be sustainable for at least 52 weeks and be for 16 hours or more per week
  • Jobs must be new jobs or new Modern Apprenticeships that would not have been created without access to the Fair Work Incentive
  • Individuals recruited through the Fair Work Incentive must receive a written contract of employment (it is a legislative requirement that an employee receives a contract of employment within 2 months of starting). The employment contract should be a permanent contract, a fixed term contract for 52 weeks or more, or a fixed term contract for the duration of the Modern Apprenticeship. Jobs with zero hours contracts will not be eligible.

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
