This Week’s Highlight: Opportunity for Recruitment and Employment Agencies

With unemployment being on the radar across the country and in fact the world, it seemed appropriate to highlight the federal government’s initiatives around the New Employment Services Model 2022. In March 2019, the Government announced that a New Employment Services Model would replace jobactive, a service currently provided to get more Australians into work by connecting job seekers with employers through a network of recruitment agencies. A discussion paper was released earlier this month on the proposed licensing system for the new model, which can be found at here. This is intended to be followed up with the release of an Exposure Draft of the Request for Proposal (RFP) to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to provide further feedback, particularly on the operational aspects of the licensing.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment is currently undertaking a trial of the New Employment Services Model in two Regions within NSW and Adelaide. For companies who are in this industry, this procurement activity is worth keeping track of. Significant consultation has already been undertaken, and all the related information is available on line. While the overall aim of the new model seeks to introduce an improved streamlined digital platform, it also aims to introduce a more stable model of employment agencies with focussed regions and case numbers. Comment on the discussion paper remains open until 28 Oct 20.
