Report – Voices of unemployment: Results of an ACOSS survey of jobactive service users

11 October 2018

This report presents findings from a survey of users of jobactive employment services.

This report has been published by the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS).

ACOSS surveyed over 300 people who participated in jobactive employment services, the main employment service for people who are unemployed.

Results indicated a high level of dissatisfaction with jobactive employment services, with particular concern directed towards a lack of meaningful assistance with finding a job, lack of recognition of special needs and an over emphasis on benefit compliance.

Proposals are made for reform of the current employment services system, which will end in July 2020.

Download the report from the ACOSS website.
