Supported employment agencies nationwide work with jobseekers with disabilities and provide free services to employers to help them with their recruitment needs.
Supported employment agencies can help with disability awareness and training too.
They can also assist employers who wish to develop more inclusive recruitment and workplace practices.
Supported employment involves the use of a job coach service. A job coach is a trained and experienced employment and disability professional who works, one-to-one, with employers and jobseekers.
“What I’d say to other employers is, don’t be scared, don’t be sceptical, this is a system that works. The support is there if required and you’ll have no issues.”
