Jobs Network Intensive Assistance Providers
obs Network Intensive Assistance Providers (JNIAPs) are private agencies contracted by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations as part of the privatisation of the Commonwealth Employment Service. There are three levels of providers. Those contracted to provide services are likely to provide employment case management to some people with disabilities.
Some Competitive Employment Placement and Training Services (CEPTs) have also been contracted as JNIAPs as well.
The primary difference between JNIAPs and CEPTs are:
- JNIAPs are paid by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations based on how many successful employment placements they make.
- JNIAPs are paid a percentage for working with a job seeker and then paid a second instalment once the job seeker has worked at least eight hours per week for 13 weeks:
- they are paid a final instalment when a job seeker has been employed for 26 weeks.
- Part of the remuneration JNIAPs receive from the government may allow them to provide paid training for the job seeker or negotiate an employment subsidy directly with an employer.
