For the recruitment of persons under 30 years of age

This aid offers public subsidies to companies and worker cooperatives for hiring young unemployed people.
The application deadline is 31 March 2022.
For the recruitment of persons aged 30 and over
The main objective of this aid is to subsidise the employment of unemployed people over 30 years of age. It offers them a stable and quality job, especially to those people who are more vulnerable.
Those who wish to apply for the subsidy must meet the following requirements: be over 45 years of age and be long-term unemployed.
The application deadline is 31 May 2022.
For the recruitment of people aged 52 and over, in receipt of the RGC and not receiving
This aid is the novelty of this year's call, as people over 52 are also a very vulnerable group at risk of social exclusion and, therefore, have much more difficulty in finding work. In addition, they have little time to contribute and be entitled to retirement benefits.
These subsidies are aimed at local councils and county councils, which will have to hire these people for one year on a full-time basis.
The application deadline is 31 January 2022.
