As part of the 2017/18 State Budget announced on 22 June 2017, the Job Accelerator Grant Scheme was updated to provide employers an additional $5,000 to take on an apprentice or trainee. This is extra to the existing fund to encourage SA businesses to employ additional full-time, part-time and casual employees, and maintain them for at least 12 months. $10,000 each new employee is available to employers liable for payroll tax; and $4,000 each new employee is available for small businesses not liable for payroll tax.
Following the appointment of a new, well-credentialed chairperson Nikki Govan, the Southern Adelaide Economic Development Board (SAEDB) will play a key role in advocating for our region and seeking commitment for initiatives that will stimulate economic and jobs growth in the region.
