Type of Program:
The START program offers financial incentives to businesses and organizations that have business locations and jobs in Nova Scotia to help them hire Nova Scotians who need work experience. There will be a focus on SMEs.
Benefits of the Nova Scotia Start Program:
The Start Program provides a range of career opportunities for unemployed individuals looking to enter the workforce. The program helps connect job seekers with employers who have vacancies that need to be filled.
One of the main benefits of the Start Program for job seekers is the letter of recommendation that they receive after applying. This letter helps market their skills and experience to potential employers, making it easier for them to find a job.
In addition to the letter of recommendation, the Start Program also provides job seekers with access to training and education opportunities. By participating in these programs, job seekers can improve their skills and increase their chances of finding employment in their desired field.
Employers who participate in the Start Program also benefit from the program’s incentives. These incentives include wage subsidies and other types of funding that can help offset the cost of hiring an unemployed Nova Scotian. By participating in the program, employers can find qualified candidates for their job vacancies and receive financial support to help with the cost of training and development.
Comments on Funding:
Funding is up to a maximum of $25,000 per hire, and at ENS’ discretion.
Incentives will vary depending on the type of employment offered and the skill level of the employee. Incentives can be used to pay for individual’s wages, MERC, training costs or other related costs associated with hiring of a new employee.
