CSJ provides paid employment opportunities for young people between the ages of 15 and 30 to develop and improve their skills in the not-for-profit, small business and public sectors.
For 2021, 120,000 positions will be supported through the CSJ, up from 80,000 in 2020. The government is also extending the temporary flexibilities included in CSJ 2020 through this coming year. These changes include:
Applications are made through the employer’s Grants and Contributions Online Services (GCOS) account. If your business or organization does not have a GCOS account, register here.
Let Sussex help connect you with the right people in government to help your organization get through these extraordinary times.
Please reach out to your Sussex representative directly or to a member of the Federal Government Relations Team.
