jobactive has now ended
– but we’re still here for you

Head to our Workforce Australia page for everything you need to
know about the new services to help you find lasting employment.

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

If you’re employed with a disability, a workplace assessment can help identify what you need to make your job easier

APM is a member of the National Panel of Assessors and we deliver an independent workplace assessment to find out if you or your employer needs some help.

Depending on your needs, this may include ongoing support to help carry out your job tasks, or new tools, equipment or technology to help you work.

Once you have found a job through a Disability Employment Services provider, there are three types of support programs you may be assessed for:

  1. Ongoing support – such as one one one assistance to learn new tasks
  2. Supported wage system – making sure suitable pay structures are in place for you and your role
  3. Workplace modifications – identifying whether you need specific modifications, tools or equipment to do your job

These assessments can only be done by an organisation that did not help you find your job through a Disability Employment Service program.

If you are a participant in APM’s Disability Employment Services, another registered provider will assess you at work.

If you found employment with another Disability Employment Services provider, you may be referred to APM for the workplace assessment.

If you have any questions about your workplace assessment, please call us on 1800 276 276.
