The Paid Escape – How can your business be involved?

The Regional Agriculture, Tourism and Hospitality Workers Travel and Accommodation Support Scheme will provide new opportunities for Western Australian job seekers and Working Holiday Maker visa holders.  
Jobs in tourism or hospitality have now been added to the scheme, which also includes agriculture, fisheries, food processing jobs.

The scheme is being marketed through The Paid Escape website and will encourage more regional work and travel, and help people access jobs in the regions.

To be eligible, participants must travel more than 100 kilometres from their current residence to take up an employment opportunity in regional WA.

An accommodation allowance of $40 per night and a travel allowance can be claimed from 9 September 2021 (from 3 March 2022 for tourism and hospitality workers) by eligible and approved applicants. Over $2000 worth of incentives are available for eligible workers!

This could really make a difference to your business, improving your options for employing the best staff to fit your needs.

To make sure your job vacancy is seen by those wanting to take part in the scheme, simply post your job on Western Australia Jobs and Seek
