Guiding and inspiring people to realise their potential and achieve fulfilling vocational goals.
Enriching the community: empowerment through employment
WISE Employment is a not-for-profit employment services provider. We provide employment services under the Australian Government's Disability Employment Services (DES) and Job Services Australia (JSA) programs. We empower job seekers to find meaningful work and become self-sufficient and we help employers to find the right staff by understanding their needs and providing them with workers from diverse backgrounds.
Each year, our passionate and skilled staff assist over 10,000 people into jobs. Our employment services are cost-free to eligible job seekers and employers. In 2014, WISE Employment merged with Interwork Limited in South Australia. Our combined organisational capability enables our combined 700 staff to provide training, occupational rehabilitation, employment and staffing solutions to more than 40,000 job seekers each year, across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and Darwin.
Since 2001, we have invested $3.5 million of our funds into innovative projects to support the most disadvantaged in our community including people with disability, mental illness, youth, ex-offenders, refugees and Indigenous communities. WISE Employment also operates four socially-inclusive social enterprises, employing 200 people.
Since 1992, we have been empowering job seekers and employers. We believe the entire community is enriched when everyone is supported to achieve their potential.
