Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Employment Participation, in writing, on 2 September 2008:

In respect of job seekers transferred to new Job Network providers: to date, how many were due to (a) job seeker dissatisfaction with their Job Network provider, (b) job seeker relocation, and (c) other reasons.


Mr Brendan O’Connor (Minister for Employment Participation) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

Over the course of ESC3 there have been 1,696,713 job seeker transfers between sites. Of these 350 are recorded as being due to an irretrievable break down between jobseeker and Job Network Member. The remaining transfers are due to job seeker relocation. Job seeker relocations are either electronically generated by a job seekers lodging a change of address with Centrelink 1,124,440 or by agreement with the relevant Job Network provider prior to the job seeker relocating 571,923.
