Key Employment aims to provide excellent quality assessment; training and recruitment services to help people with disability get more skills, better jobs and more respect in the community.
Key Employment has been finding jobs for people with disability since 1991. In that time we have found more than 2500 jobs for our participants, many of who would not have worked without our support. We have placed over 450 apprentices and trainees and guided over 200 people through accredited courses.
We have also accessed over $500 000 in funds for adaptive work equipment for our participants and have an employer database of over 1000 businesses.
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“If I have trouble with the work given I know my teacher at Key will sit down with me and talk me through the work. Key Training has given me the retail skills which will lead to me getting a job.”
