  • What employers say about our services

    "We advertise every single one of our jobs with Work and Income. They do a lot of work for us in terms of screening people they’ve got available and then they’ll send us some candidates. That’s the big benefit of working with Work and Income, because we generally have people who don’t need a work visa and who can work ongoing, which is what we want."

    Shay O'Connor, AccorHotels


    "Over the years Work and Income have supplied literally hundreds of people that we have up-skilled to obtain their licences and become competent bus drivers. Many of these individuals have been with our company for years and it is Work and Income’s on-going support and commitment that has helped to achieve this."

    Andrew Ritchie, Ritchie's Transport


    "Downer’s had a very long association with MSD. I think we’ve had over 100 people. And I have to say our success with MSD has just been overwhelming.

    Lyall Hedges, Downer

  • What you need to do

    You need to list your vacancy with us

    If you want to hire a Limited Services Volunteer (LSV) graduate, the process is slightly different.

  • What happens next

    So we can tailor a recruitment plan to meet your needs, we'll contact you to discuss your vacancy. This is so we can learn about your business and understand more about the role.

    Then we'll list your vacancy:

    • in our offices
    • on our website.

    Once your vacancy is listed, we can:

    • search for suitable candidates who would be a good fit for your business
    • shortlist candidates and refer the best ones to you
    • arrange times for you to interview the candidates
      • we may also be able to provide a space for you to hold any interviews, if you need it
    • connect you with information and services if you need advice:
      • before making an employment offer, eg how you can complete reference checks
      • once you make a decision on who you want to hire.

    We can also provide extra support and training to upskill candidates so they meet your needs.
