After you have registered with us, you can volunteer at any time to participate in Work for the Dole, if you and your Employment Consultant agree it will benefit you.
If you have been out of work for a certain period of time, you will have to undertake a Work for the Dole activity to satisfy your Mutual Obligation requirements.
Once you start a Work for the Dole activity, you are obliged to attend your activity for a minimum number of hours each week – provided you don’t start paid or part time employment.
Work for the Dole covers a wide range of activities that can assist you to increase or update your skill levels and that have a benefit to the local community.
Your Employment Consultant can let you know which Work for the Dole activities are available in your area that will help you to gain the skills and experience to find sustainable work.
