Eworks works closely with Disability Employment Services to increase the employment participation of job seekers with disability.
Disability Employment Services are a significant improvement in services for people with disability, their families and carers, and employers. Job seekers with disability have immediate access to tailored services that are flexible and responsive to both their needs and those of employers.
The new Disability Employment Services provide eligible job seekers with disability, injury or health condition access to individually tailored employment services better suited to their needs, with stronger links to training and skills development, particularly in areas of local skills shortages.
Eworks will work with you every step of the way by getting to know you and your individual circumstances. Eworks know where the jobs are and how to help you to get one. You will have greater access to training, skills development, work experience and other initiatives.
Once placed in a job, your Eworks DES consultant will continue to support you for at least 26 weeks. If you need further support after this, your Disability Employment Service will be able to help you for as long as you need.
Having the right plan to find the right job
Eworks will work with you to develop a job plan that meets your individual needs. This will set out the services and assistance you will receive to help you find and stay in a job.
At your first appointment you will meet with a consultant who will tailor a job plan for you that may include:
- Gaining new skills and qualifications.
- Accessing work experience opportunities.
- Help to manage your disability and other medical or health interventions.
- Overcoming and managing other barriers to employment.
- Connecting you with Australian employers.
- Eworks work closely with employers to identify employment opportunities and areas where skills are in demand.
The more help you need, the more help you get
Eworks also provides specialist services. This means they specialise in working with participants with a specific disability.
