Disability Employment Services

Real Futures goes above and beyond when it comes to supporting our employers with their recruitment and retention requirements.

We’re Responsive

We take care of all the details to get your new worker onboard, with any wage subsidy applications processed quickly and workplace modifications started. Our post placement support can include cultural and inclusion training and assistance for you to grow a productive, diverse workplace.

Our employers provide essential criteria for their available positions and our Disability Employment Service Specialist prepares resumes from suitably qualified and committed job seekers within 24 hours of the initial request.

We are available 24/7 – whether it is a late night shift or a broken down car, we’ll be there to get your staff to work.

We’re Connected

Real Futures’ network of employers, partners, registered training organisations, and our strong relationships within the Aboriginal community, are the backbone of our success. We pride ourselves on creating meaningful relationships that have a deep understanding and appreciation of cultural differences that can enrich workplaces and generate prosperity.

Our focus is on building community capacity through job readiness, training and employment. We are highly regarded within the communities in which we work because of our commitment to social and financial improvement. Our partnerships with employers across Australia has made us the employment service of choice for many.

We’re Supportive

Real Futures’ Reach Out Officers (ROOS) are Aboriginal mentors (Elders and respected community leaders) who provide holistic support for job seekers and employers so they can maintain a sustainable relationship. They operate at three levels of obligation: Community and Family, Training and in the Workplace.

ROOs will be your first point of contact in the event of any issue arising and are available 24/7.

Our success comes from operating organically – every discussion and decision is done with Cultural Essence, respectfully acknowledging the Traditional Owners and custodians of the Country where we meet and operate.

Real Futures operates Disability Employment Services in Coffs Harbour, Dorrigo, Kempsey, Geraldton and Gascoyne.

Trainer Deanna Lea commented that she thought it would be difficult for participants to not burn the milk, but was impressed that women picked it up after the first couple of rounds. Highlights included learning how to create coffee art in the shape of a love heart when pouring the milk. Congratulations to everyone involved.
