With contracts in 92 out of 110 designated Employment Service Areas, (ESAs) we operate in more locations than any other provider and in many ESAs our teams deliver multiple contracts.
Disability Employment Services (DES) is made up of two programs:
Disability Management Service (DMS) supports people with an injury, health condition or disability, to find a job and stay in employment with occasional support.
Employment Support Service (ESS) helps people with a permanent or long-term disability or health condition to find and keep a job with regular, ongoing support.
Across the 92 ESAs, we deliver 99 Disability Management Service contracts and 92 contracts for Employment Support Service.
Star Ratings are issued for each contract.
As a result of changes to the DES program in 2018 not all contracts were included in the September 2019 Star Ratings.
The national average Star Rating for September 2019 was 3.
APM’s overall average for DES was 3.763.
An increase in performance of 0.1163 from the previous rating.

Providers with higher star ratings are better at finding long-term jobs for their job seekers.
So if you’re a job seeker in a region or area with multiple providers to choose from, you can see which one is currently more successful at helping people find lasting employment.
