There are 2.2 million Australians living with disability who are of working age, but Australians with disability are under-represented in the workforce. In fact, the employment rate for people with disability is almost half compared to those without disability.
During the week of 25 – 29 November 2019, Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions are encouraging local business to take part in AccessAbility Day – an Australian Government initiative developed to connect jobseekers with disability and employers.
Mai-Wel is proud to be part of this important initiative and is excited to connect jobseekers through Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions to local businesses, who are seeking the opportunity to host a jobseeker with disability who is interested in gaining experience in their industry.
For more information about AccessAbility Day, visit the AccessAbility Day website at www.jobaccess.gov.au/accessabilityday or call 1800 464 800.
If you would like to talk to one of Mai-Wel’s AccessAbility Day team members about hosting a jobseeker, call (02) 4015 8400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
