A Plan for Jobs which came into full force in August, provides a variety of opportunities for individuals and incentives for employers. The Plan for Jobs is designed not only to help people find jobs following the COVID-19 pandemic, but ensure they are purposeful and will enable people to progress through relevant training and development.
The Plan for Jobs is considered critical in re-building the economy, getting people into work and businesses back on their feet. In doing so, we know that what happens over the coming months must take into account what has and continues to be experienced as a consequence of COVID-19. During this period, the transition to digital practices has been rapid and fundamental to help keep the economy moving as far as possible. As a result, the expectation is of a ‘new norm’ – both people and businesses doing things differently now and in the future.
