To succeed in any field, you need to have the passion, skills and experience but also the right tools for the job. DES providers and employers should look no further than the JobAccess Employer Toolkit – a new online resource for matters relating to disability employment.
The recently-launched toolkit contains expert information, downloadable resources and real-life case studies on a wide range of topics, right from developing inclusive policies & procedures and accessible recruitment to managing workplace modifications.

• Putting it into practice: how do employers, DES providers and people with disability work with JobAccess for employment success?
