Flexibility and diversification
AXIS Employment’s evolution from humble beginnings in 1992 has involved having flexibility to diversify in the types of services it provides.
Two of its key focus areas are its primary Disability Employment Services, DES, and the youth-focused Transition to Work, TTW, program.
As a major Disability Employment Services provider AXIS Employment has a clear directive to help people with a health barrier or disability find and keep a job.
Employment services manager Viv Watson said after a person had a Centrelink assessment to check their eligibility, they might be referred to AXIS Employment, and that’s where the journey started.
“Here we will provide that person with support to gain and maintain a job, regardless of their personal circumstances,” she said.
“People can contact AXIS Employment to help get through this process.
“AXIS Employment provides the support to ensure you get the right job.
“We have passionate and caring employment consultants who will help you on your journey into employment.
“It is important to remember that disabilities vary considerably between individuals and this is where we have an acute understanding.
“Together with your employment consultant, we will develop a job plan, discuss where you would like to work, develop a resume and assist you with training and skill development.
“AXIS Employment has access to wage subsidies to help your employer to train and support you while you learn your job.”
Mrs Watson said AXIS Employment provided a supportive and positive service to help people with a disability when they were looking for a job and support them and their employer while they settled in and learnt new skills.
