Finding work in Australia

Looking at online recruitment platforms and employer websites to find a suitable job.

Where to look

 Online recruitment platforms

In Australia many employers use online platforms to advertise jobs. The following websites are the most commonly used by Australian employers:

  • Seek – Australia’s number one employment, career and recruitment website.
  • JobActive – the Australian government’s jobs board.
  • CareerOne – search thousands of Australia’s jobs.
  • Ethicaljobs – search for job vacancies relating to community, the environment, not-for-profit and social enterprise.
  • Jora – search for Australian based jobs drawn from many job platforms.

Employer websites

Large companies and government organisations will also have career or vacancy pages on their own websites.

The Western Australian government has a jobs board that lists all vacancies across Western Australian state government departments.

The City of Stirling lists all vacancies on its website.


Recruitment agencies

Employers may also use recruitment agencies to find suitable candidates for jobs. Registering with a recruitment agency may increase your exposure and help identify jobs that may not be advertised anywhere else.
