Workskills

Workskills_250Workskills is dedicated to finding suitable jobs for people with disabilities who wish to work in open employment.

Since its inception in 1992, Workskills has built an enviable reputation for matching the needs of job seekers with the requirements of employers. It is a leading disability employment service in the Illawarra and is rated “high-performing” by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

It places people in a variety of roles including casual, part-time, full-time and apprenticeship positions. Our experienced team of employment consultants have excellent industry networks in many sectors including hospitality, retail, administration, building & construction, garden & landscaping, cleaning, aged & disability care and government agencies.

Many of our job seekers have joined organisations at “entry level” and gone on to establish successful careers.

Workskills has a strong focus on training and making sure our job seekers are “work ready” by organising work experience and training (such as certificate courses), work clothing and equipment.

The staff at Workskills also provide advice to employers on issues such as accessing government incentive programs, site inspections and assistance with workplace modifications (if required), as well as on-going mentoring and support.
