What are jobs-focused social enterprises?
A jobs or employment-focused social enterprise focuses on creating meaningful employment for disadvantaged Australians. Nearly 7,000 of all social enterprises in Australia have employment-based support or employment creation as their main focus.
Jobs-focused Social Enterprises have two modes:
1. Transitional employment (outcome to exit ratios measurements)
2. Destination employment (they employ people from certain categories intentionally)
