Opportunity for everyone
through employment and inclusion

We are dedicated to a vision of opportunity for all through employment and inclusion! NESA is proud to have been Australia’s peak body for the employment services sector since 1997. We represent the full range of contracted employment service providers, including not-for-profit and private organisations providing services for people with disability, youth, Indigenous communities, people with mental health issues, migrants and other disadvantaged job seekers.

We invite you to explore our Annual Report for a summary of how we have achieved influential representation and advocacy, and effective member support and capacity development. Be sure to read the selection of member good news stories that highlight the work of our members and their impact on transforming lives.
