Northern Rivers

Too often, people with disability are underestimated and are not expected to achieve highly in our society. Our EPIC teams in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lismore, Evans Head, Kyogle and Casino are helping raise the expectations for people with disability and mental illness, finding them jobs in their community and supporting them in that job until they no longer need us.

“My Employment Consultant is approachable, kind and helpful. She is responsive and doesn’t treat me like a number.” – Phillip

At EPIC we don’t just find jobs for people, we are committed to helping them keep a job. We are experts in disability employment services. We offer the Australian Government’s free Disability Employment Services (DES) program to support people with disability at all stages of their career journey.

When you join EPIC we will:

  • provide a list of activities for you to choose from, that will help you reach your goals
  • identify your skill gaps and assist you to enrol in training to diversify and extend your skillset
  • 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.
