Disability Employment Services

What we do

Accord Employment helps job seekers with a disability along their journey to a rewarding career.

Our job seekers are as diverse as the general community and have all types of abilities. We assist qualified professionals, enthusiastic assistants and hard-working school leavers.

Employers and work experience hosts are key partners in achieving positive outcomes. We work in partnership with you the employer, and job seekers to ensure that we meet all your business needs.

How we work

Our careful job matching begins with getting a clear understanding of your recruitment expectations. Our staff are experienced in efficiently analysing your workplace and job requirements and then matching them to a job seeker’s skills and interests.

We are onsite to assist with on the job training from day one until your new worker has settled in and is working well. Then we provide ongoing support for as long as needed and we continue to stay in regular contact to ensure the work is always done properly and that any issues are resolved promptly.

Subsidies

• Wage subsidies are available to reward you and offset the cost of spending a little extra time with us and your new worker.

• Workplace modifications or specialised equipment are sometimes required, and we will arrange government funding to cover approved costs.

• The government’s Supported Wage System is included in all Modern Awards and allows workers with a disability who are unable to work at full productivity to be paid a reduced wage commensurate with their work rate.

Assistance for existing workers

Some people are born with a disability while others acquire or develop a disability in childhood or adult life. It can happen to anyone.

Our Work Assist program helps existing workers who are experiencing workplace issues that relate to a disability or health condition to maintain their employment. The program can provide extra support, training, modifications or equipment.

Cost

All our services and supports are government funded and free to job seekers and employers.
