Angus Employer Recruitment Incentive
Employer Recruitment Incentives (ERI) are to help stimulate demand in the labour market while also protecting, supporting, and creating good quality jobs that support a greener, fairer, and stronger labour market. ERIs also play an important role
in supporting those with the greatest barriers to employment, to enable them to obtain and remain in sustainable employment.
Employer Recruitment Incentives have been developed to integrate and link fully with existing employability and skills programmes and are available to use as a contribution to the additional costs of recruiting and sustaining eligible individuals
in employment. ERIs can be utilised in several ways such as for additional supervisory costs, training, initial travel to work costs, specialist in work support, or wages.
ERIs will provide and protect employment opportunities for those with the greatest barriers to employment, to enable people to obtain and remain in sustainable employment. It will support local people, employers and a fairer and stronger labour
As an employer receiving ERI support, you have a commitment to invest in and improve outcomes for individuals. All employers in receipt of an ERI should promote and embed fair work in line with the Fair Work First Guidance. In order to do so,
we ask employers to complete and sign our Angus Council Employers Commitment.
