About echo

echo is a not-for-profit employment service provider operating across 13 sites in Melbourne’s South East, East and Inner metro areas.

Since 1991, we have supported people with disability and disadvantages to access meaningful employment pathways.

Our vision is simple: a more inclusive and diverse community.

Governed by the philosophy that everyone has the right to work, we advocate for all people to be included as valued and respected members of the community who can contribute unique skills, strengths and experience.

We are passionate, we care and we are driven. Our team of skilled consultants work closely with local employers, job seekers and other support services to achieve long-term, sustainable employment outcomes.
