  • provide advice on mapping of the current income support payment and employment assistance system
  • support the department in investigating and identifying effective programs operating outside of government; and how they could complement the development of a national employment strategy
  • assist with the initiation and conduct of a review of the department’s Disability Employment Services scheme
  • assist with stakeholder management
  • support internal staff to improve policy development skills and capability.
