Description

The Appointments Board Employment Service was described when set up in 1946 as "an organised service designed both to help graduates and holders of diplomas to secure suitable appointments, and to help employers in all branches of commerce and industry secure the services of men and women qualified by training....[T]he Board desires to establish two registers, one of graduates and diploma holders, with particulars of their qualifications and experience, the other of employers willing to have their names placed on the register with particulars of the type of training they will generally require in new appointments to their staffs."

The series consists of material related to this process over 15 years and includes records related to the establishment of the service, the files of individual students registered, and correspondence with employers (both national and international). These provide an insight into the social and economic conditions prevalent in Australia in the years immediately following the Second World War.
