Disability Employment Services
Living with a disability, injury or illness and looking for work?
Real Futures started providing Disability Employment Services on behalf of the Australian Government in 2018, and since then we have successfully helped people into all sorts of jobs across many business sectors.
We will work with you to supply all the initial support you need to find that perfect job. And we will continue to support you to make sure your transition to ongoing employment is as stress-free as possible.
Our experience makes us different
Our background in working with people who have faced disadvantage and discrimination has broken down many barriers for our job seekers and we bring this experience to those people who live with a disability or inability.
Our Employment Specialists know how to help you get ready for the world of work. We will update your resume, find suitable training that suits you and the job, buy some of the things you need to get started, like work clothes, and support you when you start work.
We can help you to balance family and work demands as well as start managing a budget to save that hard-earned wage. Real Futures wants you to have the confidence you need to start work and support you to achieve your career and life plans.
