  • Australian Public Service (APS) personnel work alongside the service provider to:
    • support capability and capacity to improve services and employment outcomes for clients.
    • engage and advocate locally to improve coordination across complex program and service landscapes, streamlining pathways for people to address employment barriers and gain secure well-paid jobs.
  • Funding for capability and capacity building and changes to outcome payments in recognition of the local labour market.

Next Steps

Over the next 18-24 months, the Department will evaluate Broome Employment Services and continue to engage, listen and work with stakeholders to identify opportunities to strengthen the service delivery model.
