Disability Employment Services

CoAct and VisAbility work with employers to create sustainable employment opportunities for people with vision impairment or sensory disability.

We can help you:

  • Consider your unique skills, experience and work preferences
  • Prepare you with the tools necessary to undertake employment, including interview techniques
  • Provide advice on assistive technology as required
  • Work with you and your employer to support your employment needs in the workplace

Our Disability Employment Services will:

  • Create employment opportunities in line with the agreed employment plan
  • Initiate interviews with suitable employers
  • Provide support before interviews and during placement

As a job customer, you will be supported before, during and after placement to ensure you are at ease and productive in your new role. We have established relationships with employers who can offer employment opportunities that reflect your skills and experience.

VisAbility is the only specialist employment program that is committed to empowering vision impaired West Australians to live an independent life. We offer employment services to any Western Australian with a sensory disability. For more information about our disability employment service, contact us today.

Pathway into Employment Workshop 

We run a one day course to assist students with a disability to transition into the world of employment.

The course covers a range of topics including:

  • How to find work and using contacts to source work
  • Interview techniques and skills
  • Support available to help you
  • The role of employment agencies

We currently have a planned workshop in Term 2 commencing in May 2021 and are accepting expressions of interest from students and schools who may wish to attend.

Educators are welcome to accompany their students. For further information contact wendy.harper-penman@visability.com.au
