Supported employment: rewarding jobs for people with disabilities

Man in supported employment

Our businesses in NSW and Qld provide a huge range of jobs for people with disabilities - and we can help you find one you’ll love. Supported employment means more than receiving a wage – you’ll learn new skills, gain work experience, meet new people, and work on your career goals.

Once you have joined our team, we’ll also work with you to develop a Employment Assistance Plan (EAP) which will help you to work towards achieving your long-term goals which may be to find a job in open employment.

Getting Started

To be eligible for supported employment at House with No Steps, you must have a DSP and an NDIS plan.

No experience or qualifications are needed to start your career in our businesses. We will train and support you every step of the way with our team of qualified supervisors and trainers.
