Our Employment Services brand, atWork Australia, has been helping deliver employment services on behalf of the Australian Government since 2003 and currently delivers Disability Employment Services (DES), jobactive, ParentsNext and Vocational Training and Employment Centre (VTEC).

atWork Australia’s mission is to optimise work and life participation for people with injury, illness, disability and disadvantage, knowing that employment changes the lives of individuals, as well as the lives of their family, friends and community. In the past five years alone atWork Australia has partnered with more than 10,000 employers and placed over 23,000 Australians into meaningful employment.

With over 300 locations around Australia, our Employment Services brand empowers job seekers and DES clients and supports them through their journey to sustainable employment while working closely with local and national employers across all industries to find the right employee for their business.

Arron’s Journey Towards Employment

Arron is a 26-year-old Indigenous male from Western Australia who faced numerous barriers to employment, including a past criminal record, mental health issues, homelessness and long term unemployment. With tailored support from atWork Australia that included counselling, confidence building, goal setting, financial help and support to obtaining housing, Arron was able to secure employment in his desired role as a forklift operator.

“I really like my job,” said Arron. “I feel my life is stable and secure now and my girls get to see their dad again.”

Arron’s story is one of immense achievement in how he was able to overcome such significant barriers and point his life in the right direction. Arron was a 2019 National Employment Services Association (NESA) finalist in the Achiever of The Year Category.

Employer Partnerships – atWork Australia and Stellar

Stellar’s partnership with atWork Australia is a new relationship that has led to more than 120 successful placements since 2018, through both jobactive and Disability Employment Services. The benefits of this partnership have been immediately obvious for disadvantaged job seekers who are given the chance to learn new skills through full-time paid training from Stellar, as well as the option to pursue a Certificate III in Customer Engagement.

“We have only been working with atWork Australia for the past 18 months, however we have seen the true benefit that this kind of partnership brings; for our business, our clients’ business, and importantly, our employees. We look forward to building on our partnership with atWork Australia in the future.”

Stellar’s commitment to employing disadvantaged Australians was recognised at the 2019 National Employment Services Association (NESA) Awards where they were a finalist in the Champion Employer of The Year Category.
