Supported employment – employers

Our team of specialists work with businesses across the Auckland region, from Albany to Pukekohe. We provide staff for a range of large and small companies in industries as diverse as IT, manufacturing, food service and retail.

Our candidates have a wide range of disabilities; physical, sensory, intellectual and mental illness. They also have a wide range of talents. From lawyers to computer technicians, from machine operators to shop assistants, people with disabilities represent a highly motivated, willing and capable pool of talent.

Our specialised service means we actively support these employees in the workplace to ensure they have additional support to cater for their disability, and ensuring the employer gets the best from their employee. Many of our employees are extremely dedicated and loyal, some with 17 years service to their employer. Not only will you be getting a great employee, but you will be making a huge difference in someone's life.
