When working, you must be paid at least the minimum wage provided in the appropriate award or industrial agreement. If the position isn’t covered by an award or agreement, you must be paid at least the national minimum wage. Pay rates are based on your work duties and other factors like age and qualifications.
If you are a part-time or full-time employee, you will normally work regular hours and are entitled to personal leave and annual leave. If you are a casual employee, you will usually work irregular hours and will not be entitled to paid personal leave or annual leave (however you will be entitled to casual loading).
If you are in the program for 18 months and have not gained sustainable employment, a Program Review will be completed to determine whether you would benefit from a further 6 months in the program or be referred to another program. If you remain with the service and are not in suitable employment for a further 6 months (24 months in total), you will automatically be exited from the program and re-assessed by DHS.

If the employer thinks you are a good fit for their business, you may be offered a job with them at the end of the placement. When you take part in NWEP you will receive an extra $20.80 per fortnight in addition to your income support payment.
There are many different types of roles and activities you can do through a NWEP placement. We will discuss with you the things you think you are good at and the types of jobs you want to do. This will help to find the right placement for you.
The purpose is to place you in a work-like role. This will give you the best opportunity to show your skills to a potential employer.
In placing you in an NWEP placement, Complete Personnel will make sure you have completed any necessary workplace specific training or required activities before you start. Complete Personnel will also continue to support you while you undertake NWEP and look for work.
An NWEP placement can be undertaken in businesses run for profit or not-for-profit business, or even a local, state or federal government agency.
Complete Personnel can help you to identify a suitable business where you could complete your work experience.
Let us know if there is a specific business you want to do an NWEP placement in. If it is suitable, Complete Personnel will help you to approach the employer to see if there are job opportunities available and negotiate a work experience placement.
