NDRC service sharpens focus on employer-led strategies to increase workplace participation of people with disability
MELBOURNE – Following a service review process, the Australian Government today announced the extension of the contract with WorkFocus Australia to administer the National Disability Recruitment Coordinator (NDRC) service to 30 June 2015. Effective immediately, the NDRC service model has evolved to place greater emphasis on partnering with employers to create disability-ready and disability-confident organisations - ultimately increasing the employment participation rates of people with disability, including people with mental health conditions.
In March 2012, The Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) held a signing ceremony to celebrate the recent partnership of FaHCSIA and the National Disability Recruitment Coordinator (NDRC).
After 2 years of strong foundation work, WorkFocus is pleased to advise that as of March 2012, we have secured the support of 29 large employers across the country that are committed to working closely with us to generate increased employment opportunities for candidates with disability across their organisations.
