Supported employment explained
Supported Employment promotes the rights of all individuals to achieve their full potential through a model of flexible and individualised support. It enables people with disabilities, long-term conditions and multiple barriers to access real and sustainable jobs for real pay in the open labour market.
Supported Employment agencies provide tailored support to suit the job seeker’s needs and the requirements of the employer.
Experienced employment support workers work closely with job seekers to assess their skills and career interests and determine the type of support they may require. They also assist employers to assess their recruitment needs so they can ‘match’ a client to the available opportunities.
