J-Jobs is an innovative approach to obtaining meaningful employment for a job seeker with a disability while optimising business outcomes. Funded by JCA‘s The Choice Foundation, JJobs is centred on the customised employment approach and uses proactive strategies to match candidates with their ideal job.

How does J-Jobs work?

Through a supportive and collaborative partnership, we work with candidates and employers to obtain meaningful employment outcomes. Here’s how we do it.

Discovery

Candidates – emphasis is placed on you, where your preferences, skills and motivation is used to guide the process of the employment journey.  We explore and identify the conditions necessary for successful and positive employment. This includes discovering your interests and the contributions you will offer to the employer.

Employers – we work with employers to identify opportunities where a person with a disability can add value to your workplace to create customised and optimise employment solutions. Contact us today to discuss.

Job development

We work collaboratively with both the candidate and the employer to carve a job. This development will take into account terms of employment, candidate interests and skills, provision of supports and the unmet needs of the employer.

Post-placement support

Ensuring there is adequate post-placement support with a focus on monitoring the employment relationship to ensure both employer and employee are satisfied with the role.

OUR CHALLENGE

There are many people in our community who are ready and willing to work.  They just need an opportunity to prove themselves. Through a process of education and support, JJobs aims to help businesses and organisations in our community be inclusive and responsive to young people with special needs, and increase the capacity for them to participate in the workforce.

WHY PARTNER WITH J-Jobs?

Apart from being a great way to meet corporate social responsibility objectives, partnering with J-Jobs allows you to provide a low-risk opportunity to someone within our community ‘a go’, while also obtaining mutual benefit for your business at the same time. We undertake a thorough and quality tested process to match a person to a job that is right for the individual, and right for your business.

Each employee is supported and trained to agreed-upon expectations and retained beyond probation only if expectations are met. Indefinite on-the-job support is provided for the employer and employee at no cost to the employer and we work with you to find the right employees to manage your routine or repetitive tasks releasing under-utilised experienced staff for other activities.

On average, employing people with a disability does not cost any more than employing people without a disability. Additionally, financial assistance with the cost of customised employment may be available through the Australian Government-Funded Employment Assistance Fund.

J-Jobs staff can also provide training for supervisors or co-workers as required.
