NILS has long experience in working with government agencies, private sector firms and community groups for the purpose of providing policy-relevant research services. We are able to draw on more than three decades of solid empirically-based research to inform our understanding of Australian Labour markets. We work closely with our research partners to ensure that the research will produce the desired outcomes, including providing advice on methodological and other empirical issues.
For each project we develop a team of researchers with the right mix of skills to meet the project objectives. Our senior staff have the project management skills necessary for the undertaking of complex multi-tasked projects, ensuring that we consistently deliver high-quality, reader-friendly reports within tight timeframes.
NILS has a history of successful industry linkages. In recent years we were awarded ARC Linkage Grants for postgraduate scholarships with the Smith Family, Anglicare and SA Department of Health. NILS also provides research consultancies for numerous state and Commonwealth government departments and authorities, industry organisations and businesses. These include:
