Pathways to Employment

We share your vision of a good life—that includes meaningful work.

Your job, your way

Customised employment is designed around you. It’s not about ‘one size fits all’, it’s about matching your talents, interests and strengths to land you your ideal job within the community. It’s an approach that’s been used successfully in the USA for the last 20 years.

At the heart of what we do is understanding that everyone’s journey into employment is unique so we’ll offer several options to suit you.

It’s your job, your way.
