Abstract This chapter provides an overview of Australia’s employment and skills system. While the global financial crisis placed significant pressure on the Australian economy, it has remained resilient due to a sound macroeconomic framework and continued robust demand for commodities. Employment policies are managed at the national level by the Department of Employment and delivered through an outsourced network of service providers (Job Services Australia). In response to the crisis, Australia implemented a series of measures aimed at stimulating employment in areas most vulnerable to future downturns. This included the introduction of local employment co-ordinators, who identify the needs of local areas and match them with employment, education and training opportunities.
