The Program

 

OSAs are used to determine the appropriate level of ongoing support that a participant (employee living with disability), in a program with a Disability Employment Service (DES) provider, needs to maintain their employment.  The purpose for a SWS Assessment is to provide a method for a reliable and independent, work productivity assessment which determines the actual productivity rate of a person with disability working in the open labour market.

 

At MAX, we value diversity – in the backgrounds, ideas, work styles and perspectives of our team. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourage people with disability, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people, mature aged workers and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to apply.  We adhere to the National Principles for Child Safety and require all team members to be committed to child safety and well-being.  Our induction and training will provide you with these principles, including having an understanding of children's developmental needs and culturally safe practices.
