How to become a supported employee with Access Industries

Access Industries has successfully been providing supported employment for people with disability since 1949.  By offering effective training and ongoing support, we break down the barriers to employment for people with disability and encourage employees to work towards achieving their life goals.

We currently employ over 260 people with disability across our various sites in Sydney, Newcastle and Lithgow, working in packaging and warehousing, laundry, timberwork and sewing. Our employees with a disability work alongside employees without disability, all participating in the same working conditions and opportunities.

We are a business that prides itself on providing a supportive and professional workplace that delivers quality products for our customers. We deliver ‘best practice’ service delivery in accordance with the National Standards for Disability Services and the NDIS Practice Standards.

To ensure Access Industries is the right place for you, a Welfare Officer and Safety & Training Officer will meet with you for an initial interview and skills assessment. You will need to meet the NDIS Eligibility Criteria for Supported Employees.  When can help you navigate that process.

Your work goals, support requirements, travel options and employment conditions (the award wage paid, work hours etc) will be discussed and you will be provided with the information you need to make an informed choice on employment.

We encourage that you bring a support person with you (parent, advocate or friend) to our first meeting, however you are welcome to come on your own – it is your choice. If you would like to work for Access Industries please Contact Us.
