Our local Discover Work Employer Recruitment Incentive (ERI) helps people of all ages with the greatest barriers to employment get jobs and stay in jobs. It is funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Dundee City Council. The support provided by Scottish Government includes No One Left Behind and the Young Person’s Guarantee funding.

Employers can apply for funding to help with the costs of recruiting and employing someone who fits the eligibility criteria for the fund. It can provide up to £6000 for newly created jobs or vacancies. Employers who are successful in applying to the fund receive the money direct.

Employer Recruitment Incentive (ERIs) play an important role in supporting those with the greatest barriers to employment, to enable them to obtain and remain in sustainable employment. The Discover Work ERI can be utilised in several ways such as for additional supervisory costs, training, initial travel to work costs, specialist in work support, or wages. No single use is prescribed.
