I’m looking for a job

We have help available to support you if you’re looking for a job. You may also get help from other places. What you can get depends on your situation.

There’s financial help that includes:

  • payments you might get from us
  • services and tips that can help you while you’re waiting to get a payment
  • other financial options such as no or low interest loans or accessing your super early.

There’s also government support to help you:

  • decide what type of job you want
  • prepare to apply for a job
  • find a job.

Once you start a job there are things you’ll need to do, like:

  • give your employer your financial details
  • tell us about changes to your income
  • report your income if you’re still getting a payment from us.

You may also want to find child care if you have children in your care.
