About Us

Equity Labour Services (ELS) is a social enterprise that provides commercial services incorporating vegetation control, cleaning, large scale mowing/slashing, landscaping and general maintenance. Established in 1999, ELS commenced operations on the North West Coast of Tasmania, based in its Ulverstone Operations Centre and has since extended services across all regions of the state.

We have a demonstrated and proven record of providing grounds maintenance solutions to our stakeholders across a wide scope of work since 1999. Our satisfied clients range from local councils, corporate agencies through to State and Federal government departments. Our extensive range of modern and well maintained machinery is operated by qualified and experienced personnel with in depth knowledge of our customers’ needs and safety requirements. ELS strives to exceed contracted requirements and provide the highest standards of quality and service on a daily basis.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer that takes pride in employing local people who have experienced difficulty in gaining employment. A number of these willing workers have disabilities or are from disadvantaged backgrounds, and may possess a defined capability which is assessed and aligned with their work role in order to exceed our customers’ needs.

ELS is a Tasmanian social enterprise of WISE Employment; a national not-for-profit employment services provider established in 1992 to assist people with disabilities into employment. WISE currently delivers the DES (Disability Employment Services) and jobactive Australian Government employment contracts, whilst operating three social enterprises: Clean Force Property Services (Victoria & NSW) Incito Maintenance (VIC) and ELS (Tasmania). These social enterprises provide commercially viable services and produce employment opportunities to allow people from disadvantaged backgrounds to enter the workforce.
