MatchWorks is a not-for-profit community organisation with more
than 15 years of 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 57 different 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.
At MatchWorks we believe the difference between us and
standard services is our willingness to go the extra mile.
MatchWorks has a genuine commitment to supporting people and the
community in which we operate.
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 having never 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
