At EPIC we provide a personalised service to help people with disability and mental illness achieve their employment goals. We are disability employment specialists. We offer the Australian Government’s free Disability Employment Services (DES) program.
Our team in Cairns, Innisfail and Mareeba support job seekers throughout their employment journey until our assistance is no longer needed.
“I look at EPIC as a major support network in my life, because they are always there to offer advice and they always genuinely care and listen.” – Shannon
Our relationship with our job seekers is based on respect and equality: we will work hard to find the right job for you, while you will work hard to get ready for a job. When you come to EPIC Far North Queensland’s disability employment services we will:
- discover your interests, strengths and talents
- develop and regularly review your personalised Job Plan
- explain your responsibilities in your journey towards employment
- 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.
Our success stories
We strive to create sustainable job matches. We work with motivated job seekers who are ready and willing to work. Once we have identified your career goals, we work hard to find employers that align with your career goals and aspirations. We have found that this leads to success for all – the business, the job seeker and the community.
When you hire an EPIC job seeker we will assist you for as long as you need us. This ensures your business is getting the most out of your EPIC employee, and that your employee feels supported in their role.
“EPIC are good in keeping in touch with us and dropping in to make sure everything is running smoothly. They are always asking us questions about how our employee is doing, and regularly ensure that our employee is meeting our businesses expectations.” – Bunnings Warehouse.
We have job seekers in Cairns, Innisfail, and Mareeba who are looking for the right opportunity to prove themselves. To find out more about our Far North Queensland disability employment services and job seekers in your area call 13EPIC.
We love to give back to our community. Our goal is to build strong communities which value and welcome people with disability, injury, illness, and mental health conditions. We’ve achieved this by working with groups and organisations in Far North Queensland, which help create inclusive communities for people with disability and mental illness.
