WDEA is a free service. We can advertise your vacancy online through Jobsearch.gov.au. We can also use our own client-base search to identify any immediately suitable candidates for you, all at no cost.
WDEA can also create an effective display ad for your business to be run as a separate stand-alone advertisement. These types of ads are billed to you at WDEA’s current discounted rate with local newspapers.
Some of the services WDEA can provide employers include recruitment advice, vacancy advertising, candidate screening and short-listing, as well as providing access to searching our own client data-base for suitable candidates.
WDEA is a local service that is flexible and responsive to your business needs. We are able to save you time and money by offering professional advice, a timely service and sourcing suitable job seekers. We also have access to employer incentives for some jobseekers which can include financial subsidies and other options to support you and your new employee.
WDEA may provide some funding for things that are directly related to employment, however we cannot fund general expenses such as utility bills, car registration, travel costs, traffic infringement notices, etc.
Normally WDEA can only register jobseekers that are not working, or are working a small number of hours. In some situations we may be able to help you keep your current job if it is at risk. We recommend you send us an enquiry using our Contact Form providing details of your current circumstances and a WDEA staff member will assess whether we are able to assist.
Yes we can. The type of assistance we can provide will depend on your circumstances, however at the least you will be given access to our job search services. Those with ongoing disability, injury or ill-health may be eligible for specialist support.
You can withdraw from our services at any time, however while you are registered with WDEA we want to help you find work and will be trying to work with you to achieve this.
