A wage subsidy is the support paid to an employer for the hiring of an unemployed person. It is designed to support the long-term unemployed, young people, people with reduced capacity for work, recipients of international protection and people who have been released from prison in finding work.
In order to help a young person who has little work experience, we grant a wage subsidy to the employer and compensate training costs of the hired young person.

The Unemployment Insurance Fund provides mobile counselling, or MOBI, in all Estonian counties, sharing the information and knowledge needed by those looking for work.
The aim of these workshops is to share information and knowledge on various topics related to work, working life and career. Usually MOBI workshops take place at locations that are further away from larger cities, where access to labour market and career information tends to be limited. When organizing MOBI events, the topics focus among other target groups specifically on young people (including the ones currently studying in vocational schools and high schools) and people with reduced capacity to work (in the context of younger people including also their parents).
