WorkingOUT is a specialist employment service for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse or intersex identified people with a disability or mental health condition that may be a barrier to employment. It is a unique service and the only one in Australia catering to the LGBTI community.

• Career advice
• Training options to fill skills gaps
• Job search techniques and preparation
• Preparing a professional resume

WorkingOUT can be accessed from an office in the Melbourne CBD or Preston. WorkingOUT can
assist job seekers to join the program, or can organise a transfer from another DES provider if a job
