What you need to know

  • Victorian employers can have their job vacancy filled by a candidate with a Diploma of Community Services.
  • For eligible employers, there is up to $20,000 for training, supervision and onboarding.

The Social Service Jobs Guarantee is a new Victorian government initiative that matches recent graduates with a Diploma of Community Services with jobs in disability services. After applying, your vacant positions will be matched to a curated pool of qualified candidates. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to apply for up to $20,000, which you can use for training, additional supervision, recruitment assistance, work readiness and onboarding. You will get support to hire at scale. 

It is important to note that not all jobs are included in the Jobs Guarantee. The job you offer must be suitable for the skills and experience of a Diploma of Community Services graduate. They must be based in Victoria and offer permanent or fixed-term employment for at least 12 months at award rates, plus superannuation.  

Some examples of suitable positions for disability service providers are: 

  • quality and improvement officers 
  • employment support 
  • customer engagement 
  • case management administration, planning or support.  

The employee must work at least 19 hours per week (eight hours per week may be suitable for employees with a disability or who provide constant care). You cannot replace existing employees with these recruits.
