Our Intake, Assess & Develop Teams work across our Disability Employment Services (DES) & Transition to Work (TtW) to make the process of finding and keeping a job as simple and fulfilling as possible for people with disability and young job seekers.
To start, our team will ensure job seekers know how our system works and what can be expected. They can assist with the Centrelink referral process, help to obtain medical evidence and/or establish links with other support services.
Next, the teams assist job seekers to get to know themselves as a worker, to identify their strengths and develop skills in key areas to achieve great employment outcomes. They will assist job seekers to not only build skills but create an awesome resume, gain confidence and really know the jobs that will work for them. The Team can connect job seekers with training, work experience and access to work places too.
