Disability Employment Services

The Federal Government’s Disability Employment Services (DES) initiative assists job seekers living with disabilities to find meaningful and sustainable employment. Through DES, eligible people living with physical and mental disabilities, injuries or health conditions will receive practical support to prepare for, find and keep a job.

MTC Australia is delivering DES on behalf of CoAct, national network of locally-embedded, community-focused employment services providers working together to create social and economic opportunities for Australia’s most disadvantaged.

Do you need help finding a job?

We know you have unique aspirations and goals. We’ll do everything we can to boost your confidence and support your achievements.

Through CoAct, MTC offers a range of services to support your individual needs. You’ll be assigned a dedicated case manager who understands your situation, and work one-on-one to help prepare you for employment.

This could include training in specific job skills or job search support, such as writing resumes and cover letters, practising your interview technique, and help with finding suitable jobs.

When you are initially placed into a job you’ll receive help too, which might include on-the-job training or arranging employer support.

Do you need occasional support at work?

The Disability Employment Services initiative allows us, through CoAct, to provide you with ongoing support in a job if you need it. This might include:

  • Additional training
  • Personal assistance
  • Medical assistance
  • Facilitating workplace modifications
  • Organising workplace support services
  • Auslan interpreting in the workplace
