About Disability Employment Services in Mitchelton

Disability employment services cover a variety of supports designed to help individuals living with disabilities. The primary aim is to ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in society, especially in terms of work and employment. 

Our disability employment services (DES) help Mitchelton with specialised support to individuals with disabilities, injuries, or mental health conditions, assisting them to prepare for, secure, and sustain employment. We offer a range of support services including personalised job planning, resume writing assistance, interview preparation coaching, access to on-site computer facilities, liaison with prospective employers, job training, workshops, and continuous support after employment has been obtained.

As part of our Disability Employment Services network, our Mitchelton team is dedicated to promoting the importance of meaningful employment and its positive effects on the lives of individuals living with disabilities.

How Our Mitchelton Team Works With You

Our Mitchelton disability employment services team engages closely with participants through a participant-centred approach. This approach is based on the belief that everyone’s journey to employment is unique and thus requires tailored solutions.

We Get to Know and Understand DES Participants

Right from the start, our skilled and qualified Disability Employment Advocates start a detailed consultation with each participant. This process helps us learn the participant’s strengths, abilities, present skill set, potential skills, and employment aspirations. This understanding forms the foundation of the customised job plan.

We Maintain Open Two-Way Communication

We are committed to maintaining ongoing, open communication, marked by respect and empathy. Participants are continuously consulted and included in the decision-making process regarding their employment plan. As participants progress, our disability employment services evolve, ensuring that we are always aligned with each participant’s goals.

We Help Provide Opportunities Based on Your Potential

Our strategy centres on leveraging your strengths and abilities, as well as recognising your potential. This focus allows us to offer the most appropriate, individualised support, ranging from job-readiness training and resume preparation to connecting with potential employers. Following placement, we offer up to 52 weeks of on-the-job support after you begin your new role.

TURSA collaborates with participants every step of the way, supplying the necessary guidance, resources, and support to achieve their employment objectives. The journey with our participants is characterised by dignity, respect, and mutual cooperation, mirroring our dedication to empowering participants towards success.
