NESA has been the peak body for Australia’s world-renowned contracted Employment Services sector since the sector’s creation in 1998.
We help Employment Services Providers offer their very best to job seekers – particularly to disadvantaged job seekers – as well as to employers.
Our members include not-for-profit and private organisations who offer jobactive, Disability Employment Services (DES), the Community Development Programme (CDP), and other complementary programmes such as Transition to Work (TTW). We lead, collaborate and engage with key stakeholders throughout Australia, always focussed on a holistic, positive notion of employment.
Our work continues to support Government initiatives which have made Australia into a world leader in the provision of government-contracted employment services. We deliver tailored, market-specific policy support and guidance, advisory services, programme design, professional development and capacity building.
NESA is the bridge between government and the Employment Services sector.
