The recently launched Disability Jobs Connect, is an innovative online platform linking people with disability to employment pathways. National Disability Services, the peak body representing disability service providers, has developed the online platform in partnership with local WA technology company Stadium. Unlike 'traditional' employment platforms where employers advertise vacant positions based on job descriptions and job seekers use structured CVs and cover letters to apply, Disability Jobs Connect 'inverts' the process. Job seekers create their own profiles to showcase their skills, values and interests in the way that best suits and describes them. DES providers can also upload the profiles of people with disability and support them through the job search process.
