Questions Employers Ask


What is Supported Employment?

People with disabilities often find it difficult to compete in the open labour market. Supported Employment assists people to gain employment and offers practical support to the employee and employer.


How does it work?

The Job Coach works with the person to find out more about their skills, abilities, likes and dislikes in order to identify a suitable job match. We support the person to apply for positions, and contact employers on their behalf. If the candidate is successful in gaining a position within your organisation the Job Coach will produce a detailed job analysis prior to them commencing employment. This will highlight any support needs and individually tailored on-the-job support can be provided.


Is there a time limit on the support?

No. Ongoing monitoring of the employee’s performance is undertaken regularly. This will be agreed between the employer, employee and the Job Coach.


What will this service cost?

The employer will pay the employee the going rate for the job. There is no cost involved for the services of a Job Coach.


What about terms & conditions?

As with all other staff members, the same terms and conditions apply to an employee receiving support through our service.


What are the implications of employing a person with a disability?

As we carry out a comprehensive vocational profile and identify an appropriate job match, the job will be carried out by an enthusiastic employee who is committed to this kind of work. You do not incur any recruitment costs, and get the right person for the right job.
