Workforce Attraction Incentive Scheme

If you join us from another state or country, you might be eligible for the following payments.

  • $10,000 when you start your job
  • $10,000 when you complete 12 months of service

The Queensland Government is funding these incentives under the Workforce Attraction Incentive Scheme.

Who is eligible

To get the payments, you must be:

Permanent part time workers will get a pro rata amount (percentage).

You're not eligible if you’re already living and working in Queensland.

How we pay you

We’ll pay your incentive payment (less income tax) through our payroll system in the first available pay period.

The amount you get is part of your salary or wages. We include it in your income statement at the end of the tax year. You won't pay fringe benefits tax (FBT) on the payments.

You must work with us for 12 months to get both payments. If you stop working for us sooner, you won’t need to pay anything back.

How to apply

To get started, apply for a paramedic or emergency medical dispatcher role.

We’ll tell you more about the scheme during the recruitment process.
