Find your next job with our Disability Employment Service
Disability Employment Service (DES) is a government-funded initiative designed to support people who are living with a disability, injury, or illness, find suitable employment.
Working in partnership with CoAct, MTC’s experienced team will get to know you, your skills, your goals, and any challenges you might be facing. We will also provide you with the support you need to find, prepare for, and stay in a job that you love.
Are you ready to find that job you’ve been searching for? Let’s get started and see how DES at MTC Australia can help you achieve your goals!
Are you eligible for Disability Employment Services?
You may be referred to DES if you are living with a disability, injury, illness, or health condition that requires additional support at work by verifying your medical condition with Centrelink.
You are eligible for Disability Employment Services if you:
Have a permanent disability, injury, or health condition
Are aged at least 14 years but have not yet attained the Age Pension qualifying age
Have a future work capacity with intervention of at least eight hours per week
Are an Australian resident
Are not studying full time, unless you are an Eligible School Leaver
Have a future work capacity with intervention of fewer than 30 hours per week
How does our DES program work?
You’ll have a dedicated Recruitment Partner who’ll work with you to identify your needs, set some goals, and create a plan for achieving them from day one. You’ll also work together to develop and customise your resume and sharpen your interview skills.
Access to additional services
Your Recruitment Partner will work at a pace that suits you by connecting you with additional support and complementary services, should they be needed.
Connecting you with local employers
Once you’re ready, your Recruitment Partner will connect with suitable employers who are looking for your skills and abilities.
The support won’t stop there. From the first day of your new job, we will set you up with tools for success, check in with you regularly, and access the assistance you may need to support both you and your employer, on the job. We will be there to help keep everything on track.
