About Us

MatchWorks is a community organisation with over 15 years experience supporting people to find work, and businesses to find staff. We offer services in Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, including a specialist service for people with a disability, from a total of 57 locations. 

While MatchWorks offers a professional service to all people looking for work, we are also a specialist provider of employment services to people with a disability, providing individualised job matching with ongoing specialised employment support for people with disabilities. MatchWorks is a Job Services Australia and Disability Employment Services provider, providing services on behalf of the Federal Government and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. 

MatchWorks is a not-for-profit organisation, and believes the difference between MatchWorks and standard service is our willingness to go the extra mile. MatchWorks has a genuine commitment to supporting people and supporting the community in which it operates. 

MatchWorks commenced in 1998 in Geelong and west Melbourne with eight staff, providing services to around 1500 people looking for work. Today, MatchWorks is the only large provider of employment services in Australia that can boast a history of never under-performing during any contract, having kept all existing sites into the next contract and never having been sanctioned due to poor performance. 

MatchWorks is a division of Karingal, a not-for-profit organisation providing a range of services for people with a disability or mental illness, older Australians and those who are disadvantaged.
