Wage Subsidies for Companies Employing Rural Jobseekers


Companies employing rural jobseekers can apply for wage subsidies, according to hrportal.hu.

The regional workforce support program for businesses has been launched, in which employers can receive a non-refundable subsidy of up to HUF 150,000 per month for newly hired job seekers registered in rural areas.

The state can take over three-quarters of the gross salary and social contribution tax from those living with the option, which opened yesterday the Ministry of Technology and Industry announced.

The target group includes those under the age of 25, career starters between the ages of 25-30, those over 50 with no more than a basic education, or job seekers who have been registered for at least 6 months.

However, support can also be granted to those who have left public employment for no more than 30 days, are raising small children, receive care allowances, or live in one of the small rural settlements listed in the documentation.
