Employer Recruitment Incentive

Scotland’s Employer Recruitment Incentive continues to deliver the Scottish Government’s commitment to help unemployed young people who are facing significant challenges. The aim is to encourage employers to recruit young people into sustainable employment, including Modern Apprenticeships.

You can get up to £4,000 when your company commits to a new job or new Modern Apprentice (MA).

The funding is a contribution towards the additional costs of recruiting a young person during their first 52 weeks of sustainable employment.

The incentive is a co-investment in young people with a view to helping businesses grow.

As a national minimum, it is expected that 25% of places allocated to local authorities will support young people who are care leavers, carers, an ex-offender or disabled.
