Jobs Victoria supports people looking for work and connects employers with the staff they need. We provide information and advice in person, online and on the phone.

We support people looking for work, particularly people who have been affected by the impacts of the pandemic. We support people who face barriers to joining the labour force and we understand that everyone’s journey to employment is personal.

If you’ve been looking for work for a while or you’re facing challenges that make it harder to find a job, Jobs Victoria can assist.

We also support businesses across the state to find the staff they need, so they can grow and contribute to Victoria’s economy. We understand that secure employment is about meeting both the jobseeker and the employer’s needs.
