A partnership in employment

EPIC Assist is proud to be supporting members of the Food and Agribusiness Network to find job-ready employees who will bring valuable new perspectives and a competitive advantage to their business.

In 2024, we celebrate our sixth year of collaboration and connection. Both EPIC and FAN having the mutual goal to make a meaningful difference to FAN member businesses, and job seekers with disability on the Sunshine Coast and in Moreton Bay, through inclusive and diverse workplaces.

FAN members have access to free disability awareness training at their workplace to enhance their knowledge of employing people with disability.

Our team will work with you to break down barriers around hiring people with disability and help you commit to becoming an equal opportunities employer.

Register a vacancy with us via the contact form on this page, and one of our consultants will be in touch shortly.
