DES is an employment service funded by the Australian Government that offers recruitment support to employers at no cost. DES stands for Disability Employment Services.
What does DES offer employers?
DES offers employers time and money saving support in the recruitment of high-quality people. This support is provided by organisations that are authorised to offer DES services. They are commonly referred to as DES Providers.
Providers work very closely with employers to understand their business and the particular vacancies available at any given time. The aim is to find a great match between what the employer is looking for and the DES participant put forward for interview.
DES Providers also work with participant job seekers to identify the most suitable type of work for them. They support them in preparing for work, including specific training, if required. Providers offer participants a lot of support to make sure they’re work-ready and to help them find work.
All of this support is provided at no cost to the employer. In fact, sometimes wage subsidies can be granted to employers of DES participants. Providers can provide support to help organise these for you.
