atWork Australia celebrates 20 years of connecting jobseekers with employers through disability employment services in Western Australia, supporting our first clients into sustainable and meaningful work. Since then, we have grown to help thousands and thousands of people find good work, and thousands of businesses to build better lives through work, finding the right candidate at the right time.
We started off a small provider, with 30 offices in just a few states. Now, we have 380+ accessible and easy to access offices nationwide, and have grown to a team of more than 1,000 passionate and dedicated team members. We now deliver Disability Employment Services across Australia (exc. the Northern Territory), Workforce Australia from 95 offices in NSW, VIC, SA, WA, and TAS and ParentsNext in Perth Metro South.
A lot has changed in this time, but what remains is our understanding of the local communities in which we support, our local connections, and our purpose to connect people and business so both can thrive. We are honoured to have advocated for, and supported, many people into good work in pursuit of our belief that work’s for everyone, and to be a trusted partner for employers.

In these years, we have seen business and industry become more diverse and inclusive; we continuously strive to educate and further encourage new opportunities for those living with disability, injury, health condition, or those who require additional support.

South Australian employer partner, Rory’s School Lunches said, “we had success with the client we employed through atWork Australia. atWork Australia then organised to tour our headquarters and spent time with our recruitment and training team. They gained a good understanding of the backstory of the business, who we are and what we are about. They went through all the different roles and got to know us on an operational level.”
