If you’re supporting someone who is looking for work, we can partner with you to help them secure employment

APM is proud to work with a community of more than 100 partners across Australia to help people move towards their life goals and independence.

We are trusted providers of the Australian Government’s job support programs jobactive and Disability Employment Services.

Our employment consultants have been helping people find work for more than 25 years.

From school leavers and young people to those who are unemployed or living with illness, injury, disability, a mental health condition or the challenges of age - people are at the heart of everything we do at APM.

If your organisation is all about people, let’s work together to empower people to be the best they can be.

Let us help members of your communities overcome barriers, get to work, choose a career path, get new skills, get back to health or get support at home.

We can also help if you know someone who is employed but worried their job is in jeopardy due to illness or injury.

If you’d like to partner with your local APM office, please get in touch today.

supporting your job seeker

Referring a member of your community to APM Employment Services is simple

The type of employment service your community member will receive will depend on the person’s level of support needs and any benefits or assistance they are receiving. 

If they are living with an injury, illness or disability they may be eligible for Disability Employment Services. 

If they have been out of work for a while, our jobactive service may be more suitable.

Our friendly employment consultants will discuss the level of support with you and your member to ensure everyone gets the right service for them. 

You can contact your local APM office for more information about our services, or email employmentservices@apm.net.au and a member of our team will be in touch.

To refer a job seeker directly to APM, please fill in this form.

If you’re unsure which employment service would work better for your community member, don’t worry, we’re here to help

You can check your member’s eligibility for jobactive and Disability Employment Services with this simple guide

Access to Disability Employment Services

You can join APM for Disability Employment Services through Centrelink.

When you visit Centrelink, they carry out an employment assessment and if you're eligible, they will recommend you to a Disability Employment Services provider. Remember to ask to join APM so you get the best service when searching for employment.

To be eligible for Disability Employment Services, you must be:

  • An Australian resident aged from 14 to 65
  • Receiving an income support payment, disability support pension, an NDIS participant or an eligible school leaver
  • Able to work between eight to 30 hours per week (with support when required)
  • Not studying full time (unless you’re an eligible school leaver)
  • Not already working at or above your assessed work capacity

If you're already receiving an income support payment, you can also register with us directly.

If you’re with another provider, but would like to change to APM, contact us and our teams will be happy to speak to you.

Access to jobactive

Your community member will generally have access to the full range of jobactive services if they:

  • receive income support payments from Centrelink (such as JobSeeker [formerly Newstart Allowance], Youth Allowance, or Parenting Payment) 

If you’re worried your community member doesn’t meet any of the criteria, contact us to discuss other support options for job seekers.
