Melbourne Job Seekers
We are here to help you find meaningful work and the best Melbourne jobs that support your journey toward the bright new future that a secure working life brings.
Do you have a disability, injury or health condition?
Do you have a disability and are looking for employment in Melbourne? We know that working is good for your health, and contributes to your happiness, confidence and financial security. But we also know that finding and keeping a job on your own can be hard. Our job is to smooth the path.
We understand that you are an individual and every person requires a unique employment approach. We get to know you, listen to your aspirations and bring your potential to life.
Steps to take if you don’t have a disability, injury or health condition
You may be eligible for employment assistance by WISE Employment under jobactive if you live in NSW, VIC or NT, you don’t identify as having a disability/injury/health condition, and you are looking for work.
Instead of registering your interest online, we recommend the following:
If you are already registered with Centrelink, but you’re not yet registered with an employment services provider, you can ask Centrelink to direct you to WISE Employment as your first choice jobactive employment services provider.
If you’re not yet registered with Centrelink, please register with them first. You can then ask Centrelink to be referred to WISE Employment.
Once Centrelink has referred you to WISE Employment, please register as a WISE job seeker by calling/visiting in person your nearest WISE jobactive office.

How we help you find work in Melbourne
Once you register as a WISE job seeker, our Melbourne team will create an employment plan just for you. It could include a mix of job support services, training, work experience or language and literacy support, which will help you land that job.
Right from the get-go, we find out what you are good at and what you like doing. Maybe you just need help writing a resume, nailing an interview or digging deep for confidence.
We can also promote you to local businesses that have been searching for someone exactly like you. We also have access to government-funded support and subsidies that can help you compete for that role. Whatever it takes, we want to help you experience the joy of working as soon as possible.
Whatever your Melbourne employment needs are, we can help
Under the jobactive service we work side by side with you to help you find the kind of job, training, support services and work experience you’re after. We know that when jobs and people are well matched, they stay together longer.
Our Disability Employment Services (DES) job seekers might need extra employment support. We have clients whose lives have been impacted by injury, physical or mental illness, or another disability. We know these clients often need a helping hand to find the independence that comes with a rewarding job.
