A job network for job seekers

28 Nov 2006
Description

A report on the appropriateness of current services, provider incentives and government administration of Job Network with respect to assisting disadvantaged job seekers. According to the report current Job Network arrangements do not meet the changing needs of increasingly disadvantaged job seekers and an urgent overhaul is needed if unemployed Australians are to look forward to long-term, meaningful jobs. The report exposes the tension and frustration felt by Job Network agencies which are increasingly torn between doing the best for their disadvantaged clients and maintaining the bottom line. We are concerned that those providers who are helping job seekers most effectively and delivering on the Government's objectives risk financial disadvantage, even closure.
