Meet the MWLFS Team
Our Team is made up of local people with heart, drive and focus. We pride ourselves on working with jobseekers and employers to get the best outcome for everyone. More than just a recruitment service, our team will work alongside you to achieve your goals.
Intake, Assess & Develop Teams
The Intake, Assess & Develop Teams will explain exactly how our system works and what jobseekers can expect from our service. They will help you to navigate your way through the referral process with CentreLink, to obtaining medical evidence and or linking you with other support services that may help.
The Intake, Assess & Develop Teams work within Disability Employment Services (DES) & Transition to Work (TtW).
These Teams help people with a disability and young jobseekers to get to know themselves, to identify their strengths and the areas we can help each individual to develop in order achieve great employment outcomes. We will work with the jobseeker to build skills, create an awesome resume, gain confidence and really know the jobs that will work for them. Training, work experience and access to work places are all available as well.
