STEPS Work mates will help you get work ready and find a job you’ll love!
Our Work Mates are here to help NDIS participants discover their passion and employment goals, and develop the right skills for their ideal work path.
What is Work Mates?
Work Mates provides long-term and personalised employment coaching to anyone with an NDIS plan. STEPS Work Mates can help people with a disability transition seamlessly from school into work through School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES). We can also provide support for people who have already completed school and have an employment goal in their NDIS plan (Finding and Keeping a Job). No matter where you are in your employment journey, Work Mates can help you every step of the way.
