At EPIC, we see how important it is for people with disability to have a job. Work provides us with social interaction, greater financial freedom, confidence and a sense of purpose. But it can be tricky to know where to start, and that’s where EPIC can help.
“EPIC has been so understanding of my personal needs. They understand my abilities and my skills gaps and we have found a job that suits me perfectly. I cannot speak highly enough of them.” – Jason, NPS feedback
How is EPIC different from other providers?
EPIC is not-for-profit, which means our surpluses are reinvested into supporting our job seekers. We provide you with on-the-job support once you are employed, working alongside you in your workplace for as long as you need us- that could be six months, a year or longer.
That’s where EPIC is different- we’re here for the long run. We don’t just find people jobs, we are committed to helping them keep their job.
“EPIC have been the best job provider I have been with, they treat me like a person and not a number. They are not making me get a job just because I have to, but because I want to and in something that I have a genuine interest in.” – Vivien, NPS feedback
What to expect when you come to EPIC
You have the right to decide what services you receive, and when. You can choose:

- who your Employment Consultant is
- what activities you complete that will contribute to reaching your goals
- what information is shared with potential employers.
We know everyone is unique
At EPIC we understand a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work. We take the time to get to know your individual talents, skills and personality. If you need some training to reach your goals, we’ll help organise it. And when you’re ready, we’ll help you find a job that you’re proud of.
How EPIC supports our job seekers
The process of finding and starting a new job is a challenging time in anyone’s life. It’s important that you maintain positive mental health during this period of change. We have a dedicated Mental Health team to help you with strategies which promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
We walk the talk
One in four EPIC employees has a disability, which gives us a valuable and different perspective. We draw upon the insights and life experiences of our staff with disability to greater understand and meet the needs of our job seekers.
“EPIC really understand what’s going on in my life. I am very well looked after and cared for by the staff and they make sure I am okay mentally as well as physically before they help me look for work.” – Susie, NPS feedback
