Australian job seeker support business Konekt Employment has changed to APM Employment Services.
Following the purchase of Konekt at the end of last year, APM has moved the Konekt Employment operation into their nationwide Employment Services business.
The move will see several former Konekt Employment sites rebranded as APM Employment Services.
In some areas a new site will open to accommodate the larger APM Employment Services team.
Participants who were previously with Konekt Employment will see no changes to their program or services now they are with APM Employment Services.
APM employment consultants, including those who were previously Konekt Employment team members, have contacted their designated job seekers to inform them of the name change.
Employers and business owners in contracts with the employment service provider have also been informed.
Konekt Employment previously delivered jobactive, Disability Employment Services, New Business Assistance with NEIS, and Entrepreneurship Facilitator Service programs.
These programs ;will now all be delivered by APM Employment Services.
Meanwhile it's very much business as usual for our Konekt and Communicorp teams, who continue to service their clients as normal.
As Australia’s largest provider of Disability Employment Services and a leading provider of jobactive and ParentsNext job seeker programs, APM has more than 500 locations nationwide.
Globally, APM has operations in ten countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, the USA, Singapore and South Korea.
The APM team of 6,000 people delivers services from more than 700 locations worldwide and, in the last year alone, has supported more than 600,000 people to lead better lives.
Any former Konekt Employment participants who want more information about the changes can speak to their dedicated employment consultant or call the APM support line on 1800 276 276.
