Newton businesses and nonprofits are hiring!
Qualified employees can earn $1,000 in cash bonuses for taking a job in Newton.
The City of Newton in partnership with MassHire Metro South/West and the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber is offering cash incentives of up to $1,000 to any currently unemployed and underemployed individuals who secure employment of up to 20 hrs/week or more with a qualifying Newton employer.
Qualified newly hired employees will earn a $500 cash bonus after four weeks of employment and an additional $500 cash bonus for remaining with the same employer through the week of Dec. 20, 2021.
