The Victorian Government’s dedicated employment service program, Jobs Victoria, connects people who are facing challenges finding work with businesses that are looking for the right people to work for them. Jobs Victoria’s objective is to break down barriers between jobseekers and employers, and to date has supported almost 9000 jobseekers in finding work.

Jobs Victoria has launched a documentary series which follows five jobseekers from different walks of life.

'Work With Me' documents the challenges faced by long-term jobseekers, the triumph of landing a job and the life-changing effect it has on them, their friends and family, and their employers.

Directed by established film and TV producer and director, Nicole Minchin (Heroes, Agony, Twentysomething), the three-part series explores the journey from jobseeker to employment for Victorians facing barriers to work – from a person with a disability to a long-term job-seeker, a single mum, a refugee and a recent school leaver.

To watch the full series of ‘Work With Me’, head to the Jobs Victoria website.
