How we can help you

Key Employment is a FREE service. We aim to help people with disability prepare for work, find a job and keep a job.

When you first register with our service we will help you address any non-vocational barriers to work. This can include support with accommodation, legal matters, transport issues and counselling. We offer extensive intervention services including life skills training such as driver knowledge and art therapy.

We run a personal development program which includes topics such as:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Building resilience
  • Improving self-esteem & confidence
  • Communication & motivation

At Key Employment if you need help with something we will try our best to provide you with the support you need. And if we can’t help you we will refer you to someone who can.

We are the experts in job search and job matching and we will help you look for work. We will work with you in creating an impressive resume, develop your interview techniques, find you a job and help you apply for it.

Other Employment Services include:

  • Job Clubs
  • Vocational Assessments
  • Generous Wage Subsides
  • Apprenticeship Programs (KIKASS)
  • Supported Wages

Key Employment offers you on the job support for as long as you need it. We will liaise with your employer regularly and ensure you are always supported at work. We can negotiate workplace modifications for you to make it easier for you to do your job (for example a person with a physical disability may need a specialised chair to work in an office environment).  We will help you with job redesign and career development and we will provide you with mentoring support. We aim to give you enough confidence and skills to be employed long term without our support.
