Joy Careers was created to further the NDIS mission of increasing further participation in OPEN employment. We are here to celebrate diversity and walk alongside our clients whilst we help their dreams come true. We are OPENLY ANTI-ADE and ADVOCATE for ALL Clients to achieve career success.
For NDIS Clients, we work a little differently than you standard “disability” organisation *yawn* We are GOAL orientated, meaning our support ranges each stage and week depending on YOUR NEEDS. We ramp up support for new jobs, career changes etc. and drop back once you are INDEPENDENT. Joy Careers is a big believer in ADVOCACY, LISTENING to your needs and responding. We build opportunities where you are in the drivers seat, making YOUR decisions. WE SUPPORT YOU.
As a Social Enterprise, we provide this service through ALL funding pools within NDIS funding for “Plan + Self Managed” participants through hourly rate as low as $57 per hour if needed, for Careers Counsellors that are worth up to $200 per hour. We do this because we believe in setting up PAID Employment opportunities, celebrating self expression and career exploration alongside the pursuit of long term career goals.
We adjust our strategy of development and tailor our service to each client for their benefit. All clients are progressed through the program however, due to accessibility requirements and life stages our program lengths range from 3 to 36 months.
