Disability Employment Services
If you have an injury, disability or health condition, our Disability Employment Services (DES) can help you prepare for, find and keep a job.
We offer two DES programs: Employment Support Service and Disability Management Service.
Through these programs, we will support you in finding meaningful and sustainable employment that values your skills and abilities.
We do this by working with you to create a tailored job plan that builds on your interests, skills and strengths, and addresses any barriers to employment. We will connect you with potential employers and once in a job we will continue to encourage and support you for as long as you require.
If you have an injury, disability or health condition and need assistance to find or keep a job, contact us by filling out our online form or calling 1300 194 240.
