Disability Employment (DES)

It’s never just a job for us, because we know that every person who walks through our doors has a completely different set of aspirations and needs when it comes to employment.

That’s why we are dedicated and committed to not only finding the perfect job for you, but also finding a job that is a perfect fit for your life and individual circumstances, and your abilities.

The Salvation Army Employment Plus has been connecting job seekers with employers for over 20 years, and ever since the 1800’s, The Salvation Army has been helping Australians most at need, find employment.

Here at The Salvation Army Employment Plus, we look at employment a little differently. To us, a job is never just a job. We know that to you, it’s your future, your livelihood and a way to connect with society.

We’ve placed over half a million people in jobs in over 200,000 businesses, and we are proud to support those with a disability, injury or health condition.

Working with us is simple. First, we get you work ready, then we find you the right opportunity, and then we help you settle in so that the role can be fulfilling.
