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.

eight staff, providing services to around 1500 people looking for

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.
