Information about current projects
On 1 July 2018, the Department of Jobs and Small Business (the department) implemented the Online Employment Services Trial, which delivers employment services to job seekers online. The trial was announced in January.
ORIMA Research, on behalf of the department, will conduct fieldwork evaluating the Trial. This research will help refine online employment services and help inform future policy. ORIMA will contact job seekers to participate in a survey about their experience of online employment services.
Participation in this research is voluntary, and Centrelink will not know whether a job seeker has taken part. Involvement in the research will not affect any Centrelink payments that a jobseeker is receiving. Information collected by ORIMA is protected by law under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
The surveys will be conducted over three waves. Respondents may be contacted to take part in one or more wave. The expected timing of the surveys are -
Wave 1: February to March 2019
Wave 2: May to June 2019
Wave 3: August to September 2019
Survey respondents will be provided with more specific information and instructions when contacted to arrange their participation in the evaluation. Respondents can also contact ORIMA Research via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 1800 883 345 for information about the survey.
