Discover and explore
Take the next step on your employment pathway with customised employment. We will work with you to identify your skills and interests and secure work experience placements in a range of local businesses.
The process has two main components:
1. Discovering Personal Genius™
Through a series of informal interviews we will discover your skills and interests. The interviews will include the people who know you best and will take place in settings where you feel most comfortable whether that be at home, at a cafe or doing an activity you enjoy. From these interviews we will identify your ideal conditions of employment, skills and vocational themes to help target future job searches.
2. Work trials
Once we have discovered who you are and what kind of work would suit you best, our job development team will approach local businesses to generate work trials and job opportunities. We will then support you as you take part in a range of different work experience placements based on your interests and skills.
The ultimate aim of this approach is to find you paid work in a local business.
