Employment services jobs board commences

Written by carecareers

The Government has created a dedicated Jobs Board for employees and employers working in the Employment Services Industry.  It is now operative.

This website can assist staff looking for work opportunities with DES Providers or Job Services Australia providers.  Staff can upload professional resumes and identify that they are looking for a DES job or a job in the Employment Services Industry.

DES and JSA employers can also use the site to search for potential employees and advertise jobs.
NDS encourages members to register on the site and upload employment opportunities within their organisations.  The more providers register for the site, the more effective it will be as a mechanism for managing the difficult period of transition for DES-ESS providers.
