Guide to the recruitment bonus for young people under 30

The hiring bonus for young people under 30 represents a significant opportunity for private sector companies that wish to invest in young talent. This incentive, part of the “youth employment incentive” package, is designed to encourage the stable employment of young people who have never been hired on permanent contracts

What is the hiring bonus for young people under 30

The bonus consists of a contribution exemption equal to 50% of the gross taxable monthly wage, up to a maximum of 3,000 euros per year.

The incentive is aimed at private companies that hire young people under 30, provided that they have never had an indefinite contract. The exemption has a maximum duration of 36 months

In some situations, the contribution exemption may reach 100% of the salary, for example for permanent recruitment following periods of professional apprenticeship or advanced training and research.

How does the hiring bonus for young people under 30 work

The bonus translates into a reduction on the employer’s social security contribution, excluding INAIL contributions. The maximum amount is 3,000 euros per year, distributed on a monthly basis. The main cases are:

  • New hires and permanent transformations: the exemption is 50%, with a limit of 3,000 euros per year.
  • Recruitment following periods of apprenticeship: if the young person has not reached 30 years of age on the date of permanent employment, the exemption remains 50% for a maximum of 3,000 euros per year.
  • Recruitment of students: within six months of obtaining the qualification, if they have alternated school-work or vocational apprenticeship or advanced training and research, the exemption is 100%.

Duration of the benefit

The duration of the benefit varies depending on the type of employment:

  • 36 months with 50% exemption for new hires and permanent transformations.

  • 12 months with 50% exemption for post-apprenticeship service maintenance, if the young person has not reached the age of 30.
