Let’s get to work on a clear path to your next job.
When you start work with an employer, your APM consultant will still be there for you.
We’re committed to giving you the best start in your new job. We can support you with:
a workplace assessment, or applying for modifications
Your employment consultant will take you through the supports available to make sure you don’t just find a job, but retain your employment into the future.
In the first instance this will involve a workplace assessment, which has to be conducted by an independent person – someone who does not work for the Disability Employment Service provider that assisted you to find your job.
APM is a member of the National Panel of Assessors and our experienced team undertake these specialised workplace assessments.
Although APM is also a Disability Employment Service provider we do not undertake assessments for our own clients.
If you’ve been referred to us, it means another provider has helped you into employment and we are acting as the independent party to assist you identify the supports you need.
For APM participants there are no planned changes to the services you recieve.
As a result of a review into the program, we will be expanding our Disability Employment Services across the country.
This means we will be able to help even more people find the support they need to get a job and improve their lives.
If you're registered with another provider, the changes will make it esaier for you to move to a different program.
APM delivers Disability Employment Services to more areas than any other provider. And with more than 100 new locations coming in 2018, there will likely be an APM team near you.
