Since the beginning of the year one-man-companies, the so called "Ein-Personen-Unternehmen" in Lower Austria have been entitled to help in the form of a free assistant.
The pilot project is part of a plan to try and help people back into the job market, and at the same time to support the firms.
Fifty per cent of the companies that would be eligable have already registere for the project, that is being funded by the Lower Austrian regional goverment together with the labour exchange, the AMS.
The first of the new "assistants" started work in April in Wiener Neustadt, and will be taking over an organisational role in the firm including managing the website.
In the coming months various other assitants will start work, and it is hoped that many of the posts will become full time, with the aim being to create at least 30 new full time jobs.
The first 4 months is 100% financed by the AMS and the region, and after that the funding is only partial.
It is aimed particularly at qualided staff and is being focused on Baden, Mödling and Wiener Neustadt where there is especially high unemployment.
