AimBig measures up with the latest DES Star Ratings. So, what does this mean?
AimBig Employment have had our best performing year with the latest Disability Employment Services (DES) Star Ratings released for December 2019. We’re the highest rated national DES contract provider in Australia.*
As a DES provider, we deliver our job seeking and employment services to Australians living with disability across 53 Employment Service Areas (ESAs) nationally. Through DES, we operate under two programs, Disability Management Services (DMS) and Employment Support Services (ESS).
Disability Management Services are for job seekers with a disability, injury or health condition who need assistance to find a job and occasional support to keep a job.
Employment Support Services aid job seekers with permanent disability to find a job and who need regular, ongoing support in the workplace to keep a job.
What are the DES star ratings?
The DES star ratings measure how well providers like us perform in placing participants in sustainable employment through both DMS and ESS programs versus other DES providers across Australia.
The ratings are outcomes-based and are weighted towards recognising providers who can generate long-term employment outcomes for job seekers. The idea of the star ratings is to help participants and employers choose the right DES provider for them.
Why do the DES star ratings matter?
The DES star ratings help reveal which providers are committed to both job seeker and employer needs, with solid track records for sustainable placements.
For job seekers, the star ratings indicate which DES providers are most likely to help them in their search for a job and successfully find sustainable employment.
For employers, the star ratings signal DES providers who will help find them quality, well-trained staff with a disability who will integrate well into their workplaces.
What were AimBig Employment’s results?
Over 47% of our sites are rated 5 stars for DMS and over 44% rated 5 stars for ESS. These latest figures demonstrate our commitment to delivering excellent services and proven results for Australians living with disability.

How often do the DES star ratings get released?
