Are you a Disability Employment Service? WorkFocus Australia offers the capability and services to assist you in increasing your access to large employers who are committed to increasing recruitment of people with disability.
The National Disability Recruitment Coordinator (NDRC) works to build disability knowledge and confidence to help businesses break down barriers to employment for people with disability.
The NDRC help build bridges between large employers with the broader talent pool of job ready candidates registered with Disability Employment Services nationally.
So what do these partnerships mean for you as DES providers?
Employers who join the NDRC are often at different stages of disability confidence and competence and may initially have limited understanding of working with DES. The NDRC team works closely with each employer to develop an overview of their recruitment process and preferred method of engagement with DES providers, as well as gathering hints and tips for success for your candidates.
As this information is finalised for each employer we will share it with you. Please also keep an eye out for vacancies many of these employers are wishing to promote via the NDRC in your inboxes and sign up for updates if you haven’t already firstname.lastname@example.org
