Career Mentoring

Our career mentors will work with you to build the skills you need to achieve your personal goals.

School leaver employment support (SLES)

Are you 17-22 years old or finishing school? Our team of mentors can help you transition into employment, providing the skills and training you need to prepare you for work. We are here to help you work towards the career you want, and working together we’ll come up with a plan to help you achieve your goals.

Individual employment support

We provide one-one-one mentoring for individuals, working with you to give you the soft skills and employment experience you need to help you on the way to your chosen career. Our team provides access to industry networks, interview preparation and personalised support to smooth your transition to work.

Community participation programs

Our innovative community participation employment programs are designed to support NDIS participants to build skills that allow them to actively participate in their community and to find employment. Our individualised programs are focused on self-development, with the goal of building resilience and encouraging personal growth.

What are your work and career goals? Let’s chat.

If you’re looking to find employment or need support to prepare you for the workplace, we can help. Our passionate team of career mentors have years of experience helping NDIS participants find the right job. From skills training to interview preparation, we can give you the skills you need to succeed.

If you don't yet have a career goal or would like some support in developing your employment goals, we can also help.

Working with you to find the right career

Think of us as the friendly support team you need to smooth your transition into the workplace. Our career mentors can help find the right job for you, helping you to overcome barriers, providing you with the skills and training you need, helping you write a resume, connecting you with opportunities and preparing you for your job interview.

Let’s talk about your needs and career goals

One of our mentors will meet with you to talk about your employment goals - this is also a good opportunity to talk about any barriers to work that you may have faced. We’ll talk about your skills, experience, education and we will start to explore your career goals, while supporting you to achieve more independence through participation in work.

How can our career mentoring service help you?

We'll provide you with a tailored approach that includes:

- One on one weekly mentoring

- Individual goal setting

- Arranging work experience

- Liaising with your LAC/Support coordinator and allied health professionals

- Help obtaining your license, tax file number, proof of identity

- Support to work towards the skills you need

Our team loves working with people to prepare them for work, and there’s nothing more rewarding to us than seeing our participants thrive in their new roles. If you’re ready to plan your pathway to employment we’d love to speak with you.
