Work Smarts Program
My name is Alma and I am one of the project coordinators for our subsidized employment program called Work Smarts. Work Smarts is being run by the Sobey School Business Development Center at Saint Mary’s University in partnership with Service Canada.
The objective of Work Smarts is to give post-secondary graduates the opportunity to apply their newly acquired skill sets in a work setting that is consistent with their education. Employers participating in Work Smarts benefit through attracting young talent to their organization with a subsidized, career related position. This enables businesses to get a head start on long-term hires under the provided subsidy, and gives graduates an advantage.
Right now, we are looking for employers for this program. The program offers a $8.50/hour subsidy for the participant’s wage, based on a 35 hour work week, for 26 weeks of work experience. All we ask from the employer is a $8.50/hour top up for the wage: making the minimum salary for a participant $17/hour.
If you know a business that may be interested, please refer them to fill the job description form on our website at http://www.ssbdc.ca/worksmartsns/employers/
Please feel free to contact me by phone at 902-491-6560 or via email should you have any questions regarding the program.
Have a great day!
