IPSWICH businesses considering hiring a mature-age worker are being offered a $1000 bonus.

Federal Member for Blair Shayne Neumann said applications were open for the new $1000 Experience+ Jobs Bonus and encouraged local businesses to apply.

"The Experience+ Jobs Bonus is a key part of the government's $55.3 million investment to help mature-age workers find and keep work, and to address negative attitudes towards mature-age people," Mr Neumann said.

There are 2500 Jobs Bonuses of $1000 each available every financial year until 2016.

Employers can log on to deewr.gov.au/JobsBonus to apply for a Jobs Bonus.
