About Jobs Victoria
The Victorian Government’s Jobs Victoria initiative provides additional resources to engage with employers and disadvantaged jobseekers to get more Victorians into long-term work.
west@work is contracted by the Victorian Government to deliver additional employment services to both employers and jobseekers as part of Jobs Victoria.
west@work is a partnership between three trusted community service, education and training providers in Melbourne’s West. Our partnership, Westgate Community Initiatives Group Inc., Wyndham Community and Education Centre and Djerriwarrh Community and Education Services have over 100 years combined experience in serving and enriching our local communities in the West.

Our Vision is to work in collaboration with and complement other Commonwealth and State employment services to ensure more disadvantaged Victorians get back to work, that Victorian employers have a pipeline of ready and available workers for their business needs, and that all Victorians are given the opportunity to participate in our State’s progress and prosperity.
