Looking to hire?

Contact the department and someone can discuss options with you.

While many businesses have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and are reducing their workforces, there are some areas of the economy which have an increased demand for workers. In this rapidly changing jobs market the Australian Government has increased the support available for businesses looking to hire.

If you are looking to recruit a number of staff, you can email our Workforce Contact Centre for assistance.

This assistance may include:

  • Connecting you with a department representative who will tailor a solution to your recruitment needs. This could include a range of recruitment options, such as connecting you with recently retrenched workers in your area and identifying solutions to address skills gaps.  
  • Information on how to post a job vacancy on the government run jobactive jobs board, which is one of the main jobs boards used by job seekers.
  • Assistance connecting with an employment services provider in your region. Job seekers are registering with these government funded providers for assistance to find work.
  • Adding your advertised vacancies to the Jobs Hub.

Please email workforce@dese.gov.au with your contact details and a departmental officer will be in touch.
