About Us

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 disadvantaged.
