Sponsorship

WHY BECOME A NESA SPONSOR?

NESA has been the peak body for Australia’s world-renowned contracted Employment Services sector since the sector’s creation in 1998.​

The Australian Employment Services are 36,100 dedicated and hard-working staff, who provide a crucial service helping some of the most disadvantaged Australians out of the dark spiral of joblessness.

It might not sound like much, but being jobless is more than just a minor inconvenience. Without a job, people lose their financial independence, their mobility, their social connection. They lose their sense of worth, and of belonging. Being out of work can become a crushing loss and a seemingly hopeless situation. Those who have never experienced a sustained period of joblessness cannot imagine the stress, trauma and difficulty that the unemployed can face.

The mission of the employment services is to help people to regain their independence, their connection and their sense of self. 

NESA is proud to represent this sector, and as a NESA sponsor, you would be in direct contact with our Member organisations, who include not-for-profit and private organisations offering jobactiveDisability Employment Services (DES), the Community Development Program (CDP), and other complementary programs such as Transition to Work (TTW), the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS), ParentsNext, etc. as well as RTOs offering employment services and related.

We lead, collaborate and engage with key stakeholders throughout Australia, always focussed on a holistic, positive notion of opportunity for all through employment and inclusion.

Every year, NESA hosts a National Conference attracting professionals from across the employment services sector, as well as Industry Partners and government officials. 

We also run smaller, more focussed forums, special interest groups and master classes throughout the year.
