The Department of Jobs and Small Business is responsible for national policies and programs that help Australians find and keep employment and work in safe, fair and productive workplaces. Our vision—More Jobs. Great Workplaces—is built on the Government’s plans for stronger economic growth.
Employment is central to the Australian way of life. Having a job provides financial security throughout life and enhances self-esteem, social skills and self-confidence. We want every Australian to have the opportunity to get ahead and build a better life for themselves and their families; and for employers to have confidence to grow their businesses and hire new employees. A great workplace is productive—people contribute to the best of their ability and are able to do their jobs safely. By providing good advice on policies that will create jobs, help job seekers into work and encourage great workplaces, the Department contributes to building Australia’s participation and productivity.
The Department administers programs such as Jobactive, Transition to Work, PaTH, Empowering YOUth, ParentsNext and the Seasonal Worker Programme. The Department also administers the Fair Entitlements Guarantee and Recovery Programmes and the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme.
