Employment Services are Changing
The Australian Government announced today that it is committed to building a strong and prosperous economy that promotes workforce participation and helps more job seekers move from welfare to work.
To achieve this, the Government is investing $5 billion over three years from 1 July 2015 in new employment services called jobactive.
Starting on 1 July 2015, jobactive replaces Job Services Australia.
Remote areas will continue to receive services through the Remote Jobs and Communities Programme and jobactive will operate alongside Disability Employment Services in non-remote areas of Australia.
