From July 4, Workforce Australia will be the new employment service provided by the Department for Education, Skills and Employment.
Workforce Australia will support business and industry with bespoke recruitment and workforce planning. The new service will streamline how companies find and hire the right people, with the right skills, at the right time.
The Department has informed us of changes to the Labor Market Testing requirement from advertising on the Jobactive platform to the Workforce Australia platform.
The Department is working to amend LIN18/036 to reflect the change in platform and provide appropriate transitional provisions so that employers who post on Jobactive before July 4, 2022 are not disadvantaged.
Move to Workforce Australia
On July 4, 2022, JobActive will be replaced by Workforce Australia. This will include a new online service.
If you participate in employment services, you will receive a message in the JobActive inbox indicating what changes for you.
From July 4, 2022, you will be able to:
- access Workforce Australia Online at WorkforceAustralia.gov.au
- download the Workforce Australia mobile app from the App Store or Google Play.
Access to your JobActive account
You can access your JobActive account until 8:00 p.m. (AEST) on Thursday, June 30, 2022. Then it will deactivate the JobActive online service and begin replacing it with the Workforce Australia Online service.
This scheduled upgrade will take place between June 30 and July 4, 2022. During this time:
- you will not be able to access your account
- your income support payment will not be affected.
Access to your new Workforce Australia Online account
From July 4, 2022, you will access your account through the new Workforce Australia website at WorkforceAustralia.gov.au or the Workforce Australia app.
To log in, use your current JobActive account details. Your new Workforce Australia Online account will contain your information, including a copy of your current work plan for your reference.
