jobactive is funded by the Australian Government to help people find real and sustainable jobs

If you're a job seeker registered with our jobactive service, you can get the skills and knowledge to:

  • write a resume
  • look for work
  • prepare for interviews
  • meet the needs of local employers
  • find and keep a job

If you receive income support payments, such as Newstart Allowance, Youth Allowance or Parenting Payment, you can apply to join APM's jobactive service.

The level of support you receive in the service depends on your circumstances. Our teams are dedicated to getting you into work as soon as possible, whatever your circumstances may be. 

If you’re unemployed and not receiving support payments or studying, you may still be able to access jobactive. 

Let us work with you to find the employment solution that gets you moving towards your life goals.

How we help find the job you need

APM's employment consultants know the job market in your local area  

When you come to your local APM office, you’ll meet your friendly, experienced APM employment consultant who is dedicated to you and your job search.  

They know where the jobs are and will talk you through how you can identify the best jobs for you to apply for, and match you to local employers. 

Your dedicated APM consultant will arrange to meet you face-to-face, get to know you, and create a job plan that’s right for you. This plan may include: 

  • practical help to find, apply and interview for a suitable job
  • guidance on what roles are in demand and how to approach employers  
  • ​referrals to jobs in the local area  
  • help to relocate for work if you are interested  

  • access to an interpreter if required 

Your employment consultant can also help you participate in other activities that can help boost your chances of getting a job. This includes Work for the Dole, work experience and job placement opportunities.
