Using Behavioural Science to support jobseekers in a pandemic
Dr. Darren Coppin, Founder & Head of Research, Esher House

Dr. Coppin is a behavioural scientist who has worked with employment services in the UK, Australia, Denmark and USA. His PhD addressed “behavioural change in the unemployed” with the findings directly informing Cloud-based employment service models that have been implemented with over 150,000 Australia job seekers, students and apprentices. The assessment of work readiness and resilience/strengths-based support model is likely to be adopted within Australian government policy from 2022. His consultancy, Esher House, was acquired by private equity in 2017, merged with education/employment SaaS provider ReadyTech and floated on the Australian stock market in 2019.

He has been asked to speak on job seeker engagement, disruptive technologies, behavioural science and resilience at conferences for the Behavioural Insights Team (London), Indonesian Government (Bali), Positive Psychology World Congress (Montreal), EduTech (Sydney) and all Australian employment services peak bodies.
