Job Placement and Wage Subsidy Survey 2015


This page is to provide information about a survey that will take place in April and May 2015. The survey is about employers’ experiences of recruiting through Australian Government funded employment services . The audience are employers who have received a letter advising them of the survey.

Throughout April and May 2015 the Department of Employment will survey employers to collect information on the suitability of job seekers placed in employment by employment service providers and, where applicable, the role of wage subsidies in facilitating job placements. This research will help the Department to improve services for employers and job seekers.

The Department has contracted The Social Research Centre (SRC) to conduct this research.

If SRC contacts you, we encourage you to participate and provide feedback. This will allow the Department to learn as much as possible about employers’ experiences of recruiting using government-funded services.

Information you provide to SRC will be used for research purposes only. Individuals and organisations who participate in the research will not be identified in reporting. The Department and SRC are bound by the Privacy Act 1988.

If you would like more information you can call The Social Research Centre on 1800 023 040 or email with any questions you may have about the survey.
