Employer Recruitment Incentives

  • Employees can often be an organisation's greatest resource, but it can be risky to take on and develop new staff when budgets and time are tight. In Fife we are lucky to have access to a range of supports to help employers cover some of the wages costs of taking on and developing new staff. These are open to organisations operating in Fife and we have provided links below for you to find out more information if you're interested.

    Employer Recruitment Incentives in Fife
    Fife Job Contract (FJC) is the overarching brand through which Fife Council coordinates employer recruitment incentives for adults and young people in Fife.

    Fife Job Contract works with employers and partners to create additional job opportunities for people living in Fife and facing multiple barriers to gaining and sustaining work.

    Employers can access funding to help pay for wages up to Living Wage Level for 16-36 hours over a 26 week period.

    Individuals supported into work through Fife Job Contract must be resident in Fife, however it is possible that the employer be based elsewhere.

    Jobs and apprenticeships must be additional and sustainable beyond the period of funding.

    Fife Job Contract coordinates funding from Fife Council, Scotland's Employer Recruitment Incentive, Young Person's Guarantee, Long-term Unemployed and No One Left Behind.
