NSW Government Announces Jobs Plus Program
The NSW Government is putting job creation at the centre of our recovery efforts, with the $250 million Jobs Plus Program now open.
Announced by the Premier as a 2020-21 NSW Budget commitment, the Program is designed to attract local and international companies looking to start or expand business operations in NSW.

- The Jobs Plus Concierge Service to help businesses efficiently navigate and access government agencies and programs;
- Payroll Tax Relief for up to four years for every new job created where a business has created at least 30 net new jobs by June 2024;
- Subsidised Training Programs to build specialised skills to create and sustain the jobs of the future;
- Infrastructure Rebates to subsidise the cost of a new or expanding business, to connect to shared infrastructure or to build new infrastructure to support business needs;
- Short-term access to subsidised government accommodation and spaces;
- and Assistance with NSW planning approvals.
The Jobs Plus program is open until 30 June 2022. For more information, visit: nsw.gov.au/projects/jobs-plus-program
