We service the communities we operate in, by delivering economic, social, employment and learning outcomes.

We are a government-funded service, and compete for this right by delivering excellent services. We are currently contracted for the following programs.
In April 2021 we placed 1000 people into a job, started 1000 job seekers on their journey to a job, and supported 1000 people to achieve the 6-month milestone in their new job. We have invested $9.3 million of employment funds on 7,202 job seekers – on uniforms and clothing training, tools, books, mobile phones, petrol, driving lessons, medical expenses, rent and crisis accommodation, and even food.
Case study – Path Internships
Some of the young job seekers we are working with at Jobfind have taken up the Prepare-Trial-Hire (PaTH) internship program that allows participants to demonstrate their skills to a potential employer, develop vocational skills and improve their employment prospects. The program also gives employers the opportunity to trial young job seekers in a structured work experience placement to see if they are the right fit for their business.
Rachael’s Jobfind employment consultant helped her to access work clothing and transport assistance via the Employment Fund, and Rachael started her internship at the Hungry Jack’s restaurant in Cragieburn, VIC.
Just four weeks into her internship, Rachael was offered a permanent position. She is now studying a Certificate III in Hospitality on her way to becoming a team leader.
