We support people with disabilities to find and maintain competitive employment in integrated settings within the community. We offer Lambton County businesses the opportunity to obtain dependable, hard-working, flexible, supported long-term employees. Supported Employment focuses on the person’s abilities and provides the supports the employee and employer need to create a successful work experience. All jobs are paid at a competitive rate. (Competitive wage being minimum wage or more.)
All competitive jobs have their individual employer guidelines/company policies to follow for rules of conduct, safety wear or dress code, hours of work, etc.
The supported employment staff will review these to ensure the supported worker understands the workplace rules and dress code.
There are substantial benefits to hiring a person with developmental disabilities. We match the employer’s labour needs according to the skills and abilities of our clientele. This process saves you, the employer, time and money.
We actively pursue contracts in our local community, such as grass cutting, leaf collecting and street cleaning, to be able to obtain competitive wages for employment for individuals with developmental disabilities.
We also offer resume writing, interview skill building, job coaching and on the job maintenance. We want to see success for both the employer and employee.
Ongoing communication acting as a liaison between employer and employee Job posting board. We are available for seasonal, full-time, part-time, one-time employment opportunities.
