NESA has now supported the Australian Employment Services Sector in our shared vision of opportunity for all through employment and inclusion for over 22 years.

We our proud to be associated with our Members, whose work has been constant throughout these 22 years of change, supporting the most disadvantaged Australian job seekers – including mature aged, youth, people with disability, Indigenous Australians, single parents, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and recent migrants and refugees whether they are in urban, rural, regional or remote Australia. It is work that demands care, empathy, skill, resilience, innovation and vision.

We are delighted to present our achievements as the peak body for this vibrant sector in our online 2018-19 Annual Report.
