Our team in Burnie know what it takes to find people with disability a job they love. We offer services through Disability Employment Services and School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
When you connect with EPIC’s disability employment services we take the time to identify your needs and aspirations. We then work with you to ensure you are on the right path to employment. We will:
- discover your interests, strengths and talent
- develop and regularly review your personalised Job Plan
- explain your responsibilities in your journey towards employment
- support you to create a great resume, prepare job applications, practise interview skills and attend job interviews
- connect you with like-minded employers who align with your career goals
- support you on-the-job in your workplace for as long as you need us- that could be a month, a year or longer.
Through the NDIS, we deliver our work preparation training to school leavers in real workplaces. This means you will get the skills you need for paid employment in a real-world setting, not an imitation workplace. When you are ready to transition into paid work, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to succeed.
“EPIC, on my first meeting with them, sat me down and listened to my story. They wanted to know where I had been and where I was hoping to get to. It was a warm and welcoming experience.” – EPIC Burnie job seeker
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 you organise it. And when you’re ready, we’ll help you find a job you are proud of.
If you need assistance navigating your NDIS plan, EPIC’s team of Support Coordinators can assist you to take control of your funding and optimise your NDIS package through our Support Coordination services. We will listen to you about your choices and preferences to ensure your NDIS plan meets your lifestyle needs.
