"Get to Know Us" DES series... Joblife Employment - A job for everybody

"Get to Know Us" DES series... Joblife Employment - A job for everybody | All things NDCO! | Scoop.it
Joblife is a joint venture between social purpose organisation, Life Without Barriers and Jobfind, a five star rated disability employment service. They are two of the most highly rated companies in their respective fields and together created the tenth largest provider of disability employment services in Australia.

Joblife has three employment consultants in the Hunter/Central Coast Region:

• Deanne Tonkin (Maitland M: 0409016200)
• Derek Wong (Newcastle M: 0400122440) and
• David Curtis (Tuggerah M: 0407784531)

You can also contact Joblife Employment on 1800 319 502 or via email: contact@joblifeemployment.com.au

Joblife’s approach to disability employment centres around a belief that there is a job for everyone, and the bringing together of the two organisations means the service goes beyond just employment.

Many of Joblife’s clients have experienced disadvantage beyond their disability – homelessness, domestic violence, poverty. We focus on breaking down the barriers to employment, build our clients’ confidence, help them get connected online and provide a much needed hand throughout their job search. Our consultants are therefore more than just job matchers and have been selected because they take into account the individuals’ complete circumstances. We are flexible in our approach to delivering customised service to our clients – meeting them at a location and a time that suits them, and working with their allied health teams, families and supporters.

We are one of few companies which utilises Esher House training, a program that uses behavioural science techniques to really help clients focus on their strengths and mindset in preparation for entering the workforce.

You can contact any of the consultants above to learn more about the Joblife difference.

"GET TO KNOW US" DES CAMPAIGN - APM

New contracts for Disability Employment Services (DESs) started last week. To help you link with local providers, the NDCO Program and HCCNC Disability Employment Advisory Group - DEAG are highlighting new and ongoing DESs each week under our "GET TO KNOW US" campaign. #gettoknowus

Second DES to introduce is APM, an ongoing provider who picked up many new contracts nationally. They also deliver the NSW Government's Youth Employment Services Program

Australia’s biggest disability employment services provider APM today announced it is open for business in 406 locations nationally and is ready to find jobs for people with disability as part of a new Australian Government program. https://apm.net.au/about-apm/newsroom/406-sites-ready-to-help-people-with-disability-fin-9d55bb05

APM has consolidated its market leading position by opening 63 new offices across Australia under the revamped Disability Employment Services (DES) program that officially starts 1 July 2018. CEO Employment Services Karen Rainbow said APM is also employing an additional 350 staff to help make sure it remains the biggest and best disability employment provider. “We are looking forward to getting out there today and working with local employers to find great jobs for people with disability,” Ms Rainbow said. “We all know a job changes a life for the better but unfortunately people with disability can find it more challenging to secure work. “APM is one of the top performers in DES because we find jobs for people and today we are pleased to expand this further to help even more people get long-lasting employment. We have been helping people find and stay in employment for more than 20 years, and we’ve seen first-hand the value and health benefits a secure job can bring,” she said. APM's 406 locations. Find your nearest office. For many years APM has worked closely with small to medium employers and Ms Rainbow and it was also working closely with many of Australia’s biggest corporations to find jobs for people with disability.

APM was awarded 91 areas under the Federal Government’s recent overhaul of DES. It was established by Megan Wynne in Perth in 1994 and has grown to become a leading international human services organisation delivering employment, injury management/vocational rehabilitation, assessment, allied health intervention and community care (aged care and disability care) services.

APM delivers these services from more than 400 locations nationally across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. To date, APM has helped more than a million people.

If you want to know more about registering with APM Employment Services or any of our programs, call our customer service team on 1800 276 276 or email support@apm.net.au

If you're an employer looking for staff, see how your local APM team can help you find the right person for your business.

NEW NDCO PROJECT - FILMS ON MOVING TO STUDY & WORK

 

The NSW National Disability Coordination Officers have launched a series of films “Create your future: Empowering disability in study and work”. These original short films depict the real life stories of six men and women with various disabilities. We follow their stories through different stages of transition and participation in post-secondary education and employment.

 

The films highlight the right of people with disability to access a full range of education or employment options. The unique stories also demonstrate the range of support that people with disability may access and raise awareness of the NDCO Programme as a resource and link for people with disability, the disability sector, and the community.


These films can now be accessed online at https://vimeo.com/ndcoprogramme and I have some DVDs for training use smile emoticon
