Applications for Manx Reskill Scheme open

Benefit claimants won’t suffer any detriment if they choose not to take part or decide to withdraw after enrolling

Employers are now able to apply to join the Manx Reskill Scheme – offering employment opportunities for those with long term health conditions or disabilities who wish to return to work.

Eligible employers will be matched with an individual through the Scheme and are able to claim 100% of the salary costs for the first 6 months – scaling down to 75% for months 7-9 and capping at 50% for the 10th and 12th months of their employment.

Treasury’s Disability Employment Service will match individuals to opportunities based on their skills, experience, preferences and aspirations, provide pre-employment support and coaching, and co-ordinate ongoing support to maximise the likelihood of success in the role.

Those wishing to get involved are being told it’s entirely voluntary and benefit claimants won’t suffer any detriment if they choose not to take part or decide to withdraw after enrolling.
