The National Work Experience Program offers work experience and employment opportunities for job seekers.

Employers who take part in the National Work Experience Programme:

  • provide job seekers with an opportunity to show they could be the right fit for your business.
  • may be eligible for an incentive payment
  • may also be eligible for a wage subsidy if the job seeker is offered ongoing employment after the placement.

Placements are unpaid for up to four weeks (maximum of 25 hours per week.)

As an employment services provider, MatchWorks can assist employers who are interested in hosting a National Work Experience Program candidate.
