WorkReady service provider Head Agreement (Contract)

The WorkReady Head Agreement is a contractual arrangement that contains the terms and conditions by which the Minister appoints an organisation as a WorkReady service provider. The Minister may from time to time publish an invitation to apply for subsidised activities or otherwise request a WorkReady service provider to deliver subsidised activities. Jobs First Employment Projects are an example.

A WorkReady service provider is eligible to bid for any such activities, which if successful, will result in an offer of a service agreement under the Head Agreement specific to the subsidised activities. The execution of a Head Agreement does not provide the service provider with any guarantee that any service agreement will be executed between the parties.
