Disability Employment Services assist people with a disability, injury or health condition to find sustainable work. There are two different services within the Disability Employment Service: Disability Management Services (DMS) and Employment Support Services (ESS). DMS assists those with a temporary injury, illness or health condition; who need support in the short-term. The ESS assists job seekers with a permanent disability, injury or health condition.
You only need to provide information about your disability if it affects your ability to do the job or to work safely. Talking about your disability to your co-workers creates an environment of trust and understanding. Don’t forget that if you do tell a co-worker about your disability, they cannot tell anyone else unless you consent.
Sureway provides candidates with essential items and services for employment on a case-by-case basis. In the past we have provided public transport tickets, fuel vouchers and work uniforms.
That depends on a few different things: the industry you work in, your seniority level and the hours you work. Your employer will be able to provide you with further information on your pay rate.
Yes, of course! If you feel that you know someone who would benefit from Sureway’s services, please refer them to us. We would love to assist them.
Usually it is a combination of both. We encourage all our DES Clients to actively look for employment opportunities; but we can help you find work and set up interviews with employers. Sometimes the employer hires regularly from us and sometimes new businesses wish to fill a vacancy. In our initial consultations we ask you a lot of questions to understand the kind of company you would like to work with to ensure the perfect fit!
Resumes are a great way of showcasing your skills and interests. Our Employment Advisors can help you with your resume. If you have one already, please bring it along to your appointment. If not, we can start from scratch!
Sureway commenced operations as a training provider in 1991. We worked with business and industry to upskill their staff. This opportunity gave us insight into what skillsets employers were seeking from their employees. read more...
