Subsidised employment is a system for persons who because of an injury, illness, rehabilitation or other reasons need special support from the municipality to find a job.
The purpose of work supported by pay subsidy is to enhance your professional competence and functional abilities, thus helping you find work in the open labour market. You will meet with a social worker to review your life situation, thoughts and hopes for the future, especially regarding employment and finding a job. When needed, you will also get support in rehabilitation, assessment of your work ability, finding a study place or applying for a pension.
Do the following
You may contact the services, or be directed to them, via social and health care services or via Employment and Economic Development Offices (TE Office).
To whom and on what terms
The service is meant for persons who are long-term unemployed, or in risk of being long-term unemployed. It is also required that the person is actively seeking for a job.
Basic information and legislation
The municipalities support the employment of social welfare clients by offering advice and job opportunities. Subsidised employment may be available for a person who, because of a disability, illness, on-going rehabilitation or some other reason, needs special support in order to be employed. Information about the possibilities of being subsidised is available from the municipality's social services. The goal is that the subsidised employment will lead to a regular employment relationship.
