Connecting communities for more than 29 years

We are a local not-for-profit organisation that is committed to our community. We have been supporting job seekers and employers for more than 29 years and will continue to be there for our community as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic evolves.

×Important Information | Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates


The health, safety and wellbeing of our communities is our number one priority. In order to keep our staff and job seekers safe during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and to do our bit to stop the spread, we have made a few changes to the way we operate:

  • We are no longer doing face-to-face consultations. All meetings are being delivered over the phone
  • You can register for our services online and over the phone. Fill in our expression of interest form or contact your local echo branch to find out more.
  • Staff are implementing strict social distancing and hygiene practices in accordance with Government directives


Although the way we work has changed, we are still working and here to support you.


If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact us on 1300 194 240.

Do you have a disability? Have things changed for you because of coronavirus (COVID-19)? Do you need support in a language other than English? Help is available.
