For Employers & Disability Sector
Workforce Development Opportunities
Services to support the capacity building and workforce development of new and existing disability sector organisations in Southern Adelaide, the Fleurieu Peninsula and on Kangaroo Island will commence in January 2017.
Coordinated through National Disability Services SA, most projects will be co-designed and custom built directly with businesses.
Services may include identifying:
- workforce planning and development gaps
- opportunities to transition to the NDIS
- view current job opportunities now
- referring applicants to your vacancies
We can cross-check our database of job seekers who have registered for suitable positions in the disability sector, and refer those who meet specific criteria to you for consideration; this can include applicants who have participated in an Assessment Centre process, and/or who have completed a Harrisons Assessment (to align applicant values and passions to company/occupation specific values).
Industry-specific JFEP (Jobs First Employment Projects)
Funding is available to deliver JFEP to support the rollout of the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme). These projects will be specifically aimed at meeting the needs of employers who have identified job opportunities.
These may include projects for:
- personal support workers
- allied health professionals
- client service delivery
- administrative roles
Supporting the Higher Education Sector
The state government has linked with higher education providers to support current and expected demand through the NDIS.
Flinders University and the University of South Australia will deliver clinical placements in disciplines including Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology to service the needs of the community and prepare students for careers in the growing disability industry.
For more information, see the JFEP guidelines and brief.

We can assist people interested in working in the Disability sector with information, assistance and advice and/or links to training pathways, and/or to register on our database for vacancies that suit your training, skills and experience.
