Disability Employment Service by Mission
Mission Australia’s Disability Employment Services – Disability Management Services (DMS) helps people with disability, injury or a health condition to find a job, and then we continue this support while they transition to ongoing employment. We also support their employers with training, and assistance to access a range of other supports. These supports can include wage subsidies and financial assistance to help with costs of modifying the workplace or purchasing adaptive technologies, or interpreting services.
If you are a job seeker with a disability, injury or health condition, Mission Australia can provide you with tailored services to help you find and keep a job. We offer ongoing assistance and training to help employees settle into their roles.
Once you find a job, we will continue to provide you with ongoing support for up to 12 months, to help you settle into the workplace. Mission Australia can assess the suitability of this work in regard to your condition and injury.
We can also assist you with accessing a range of other support services, depending on your personal circumstances.
Mission Australia also runs a free service to help businesses hire people with disabilities.
We treat all of our job seekers fairly and with respect, in line with the Disability Services Standards.
