Community Employment Outreach

We partner with local businesses to find the right fit for your workplace. Our skilled job seekers (with a disability) may be allocated to support tasks typically performed by front-line staff allowing you to free up staff to focus on customer service. As an example tasks such as cleaning, recycling, restocking and organizing.

Our placements typically want casual/part-time hours or seasonal work and are eager to help out and do a good job. We supply tailored support to our placements and partner businesses to ensure success
