New Employment Services Trial (NEST) - Volunteers

If you have trouble accessing this document, please contact the Department to request a copy in a format you can use.

Some people who are not eligible for the full range of Trial Services can Volunteer to receive assistance. Trial Providers assist Volunteers to access their local labour market and understand employer needs, develop a résumé, access Self-help Facilities to search for Employment and apply for and be referred to jobs.

In addition to delivering Trial Provider services, Trial Providers will need to continue delivering jobactive Stream A services to assist Volunteers until all Volunteers have completed their period of assistance. Volunteers who register prior to 9 December 2019 can receive assistance in Stream A of jobactive for up to six months. Volunteers are eligible to access this assistance once, unless they have a significant change of circumstances which results in them becoming a Fully Eligible Participant.

From 9 December 2019, newly registered Volunteers are generally only eligible for the Volunteer Online Employment Services Trial (VOEST) for a period of 12 months.
