Helping to make your job search simpler and easier… and successful
As you set your employment goals and search for the right job for you, you may have questions along the way. Some of the questions we are commonly asked are included below. If you have a question that is not covered here, please contact your atWork Australia employment consultant, contact us on the telephone numbers on this page or complete our online enquiry form.
- jobactive is an Australian Government program to get Australians into work and connect them with employers who need great team members.
- Disability Employment Services (you may also see these services referred to as DES) help people with disability, injury or health conditions to find work and keep a job.
Your employment services provider will support you to identify the best approach to employment for your situation, taking into account your goals, family requirements, skills and capacity to work.
At atWork Australia, you are at the heart of what we do; we match our services to your goals and needs.
Your atWork Australia consultant will get to know you, and together you will map out a job plan. It may be that your first need to build skills and confidence. We can help you do that. Or you may be willing to dive straight in. We can help you with that too: supporting you with resume building, job seeking support, employer recommendations, interview preparation and more.
Our flexible approach means we offer anything from training for new skills and qualifications, through to help with interview appropriate clothes, to psychological and other support should you need it.
We are able to support you in the best way to meet your employment goals.
To do that, we work with people to identify their goals and aspirations, build skills and job-readiness and support them through interviews and into employment – as well as work with prospective employers to ensure their needs are met.
Our approach is to support a person in the way that most helps them transform their life.
We’ll listen to your needs, and then work with you to create a plan to help you meet your goals. We’ll go at your pace, connect you with any training or other resources you may need, introduce you to great employers and continue to support you in the workplace in some cases. We’ll also make sure you’re prepared for each step of your plan.
Just a few examples of ways we may support you include:
- Connecting you with training and new qualifications
- Job search help
- Interview preparation
- Specialised support for people with mental health conditions
- Support once you have the job to ensure you’re doing well
- Letting our network of employers know about your skills and availability
We will support you to job search straight away if that’s what you want. We can help you brush up your resume, job search and interview skills – and start introducing you to employers. Our experience is that the more you network and approach employers, the faster you will gain the right job for you.
If you feel you need to build some skills first, that’s ok too. We will factor that into your job plan and support you to build confidence or qualifications or both.
We also run a VTEC in Perth. That’s a Vocational Training and Employment Centre, which offers training followed by guaranteed jobs to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander job seekers.
These services are offered by organisations such as atWork Australia who are experienced in supporting people with disability, as well as supporting employers to be great workplaces for people with disability.
You can also visit JobAccess to learn more about disability employment.

It offers help and workplace solutions for people with disability and their employers.
