WorkingOUT is a free 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 LGBTIQ+ community.

In this free Government-funded program, LGBTIQ+ jobseekers with a disability will be able to access the

An experienced Employment Consultant with a background in LGBTIQ+ community work can tailor a
range of services each job seeker will need to meet their work goals. This can include assistance with:

• Career advice
• Training options to fill skills gaps
• Job search techniques and preparation
• Preparing a professional resume
• Job interview practice and support
• Referrals to other agencies
• Coming out in the workplace (or choosing not to)
• Ongoing support to make the new job a success

We have created two training packages that can be tailored to your needs;Trans@work and LGBTIQ+ Awareness Training are delivered by an experienced Employment Consultant with lived experience.

WorkingOUT can be accessed from an office in the Melbourne CBD or Preston. Staff at WorkingOUT can assist job seekers to join the program, or can organise a transfer from another DES provider if a jobseekers is not satisfied with their services and would benefit from a more understanding approach.
