Trialling digital solutions


The Online Employment Services Trial will assess how best to deliver digital solutions to job seekers which will save them time, customise their approach and cut red tape.

How the trial works

The trial includes testing a digital platform that allows job seekers to find work through self-servicing options. It will also explore the implementation of online compliance/mutual obligation requirements.


New job seekers, not in need of specialised assistance, can participate in the trial. If they haven’t secured employment within six months of starting the trial, they will be transferred to jobactive provider for further assistance.

As at 11 December 2018, around 3300 job seekers had participated in the trial.
