People with disability seeking employment in the Mid North Coast have a new service provider to help them find work.
Enterprise and Training Company Limited (ETC) will be delivering Disability Employment Services (DES), on behalf of the Department of Human Services, in Tuncurry, Taree, Port Macquarie, Wauchope, Kempsey, Nambucca Heads, Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga and Grafton from July 1 2018.
ETC’s CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was excited to be building on its existing employment and training services in the region with the delivery of the new DES contract.
“ETC has been delivering employment and training services on the Mid North Coast for the past 29 years, including a DES contract in Port Macquarie and Wauchope for the past three years,” Mrs Barnett said.
“ETC has a proven track record having helped more than 60,325 people find jobs and trained more than 31,399 people since 1989.”
Mrs Barnett said that not only would job seekers benefit from the service, but local employers would also receive support.
“There are wage incentives and assistance with workplace modifications available for employers, as well as ongoing support,” said Mrs Barnett.
“People with disability will benefit from ETC’s strong ties with major employers in the region. We can help create and shape jobs suited to their skills and abilities, organise any training required and support them once they’re in a job.”
