What is Supported Employment?

Access Industries believes in a holistic approach to employment support. In addition to excellent workplace facilities, we provide other services for supported employees to facilitate a supportive and productive workplace. These services underpin the National Standards for Disability Services and provide an environment for each employee to achieve their workplace goals.

Other services available to supported employees include:

  • Individual Employment Plan that outlines your employment goals and identifies other areas of support needed
  • Welfare Officers who support you with personal issues
  • Safety and Training Officers who works with you to achieve your employment goals
  • One-on-one training
  • Internal group training
  • Subsidised canteen
  • Social Group run by employees
  • Annual Presidents’ Award for work commitment and/or outstanding personal development
  • Long Service Awards Recognition
  • Flexible work hours to meet your needs
  • Factory and Safety Meetings (run by Supported Employees and Factory Manager)

How do I become an employee of Access Industries?

To ensure Access Industries is the right place for you, both the Welfare Officer and Safety and Training Officer will meet with you for an initial interview and skills assessment. Your work goals, support requirements, travel options and employment conditions (the award wage paid, work hours etc) will all be discussed and you will be provided with the information you need to make an informed choice on employment. We encourage that you bring a support person with you (parent, advocate or friend) to our first meeting, but, you are welcome to come on your own – it is your choice.
