Scenic Rim businesses are being encouraged to give unemployed workers a chance through the Back to Work program.
The Back to Work program is designed to give businesses the confidence to employ Queenslanders who have experienced a period of unemployment.
Support payments are available to eligible employers who hire a previously unemployed Queenslander who has experienced a minimum period of unemployment directly prior to commencing work with them.
The Scenic Rim is one of six local government areas eligible to access the program.
