Programme III Subvenció Emplea Dona Plus 2023 (Women aged 45 and over)

Application deadline: from 22/03/2023 to 11/04/2023 both inclusive.

To promote stable, quality employment, financial aid is established to encourage the formalisation of full-time, open-ended employment contracts for an indefinite period of time through initial hiring or through the transformation of pre-existing employment contracts into full-time, open-ended contracts for women aged 45 or over, carried out between 24 March 2022 and 11 April 2023 (deadline for submitting applications).

A fixed amount of €3,000 will be granted to applications that meet the requirements of this call, increased by €500 exclusively for one of these concepts:

  • When the woman aged 45 or over can accredit a degree of functional diversity of at least 33%,
  • When the woman aged 45 or over is an unemployed person registered as a job seeker for 360 days in the 540 days (18 months) immediately prior to the date of the contract,
