Having a job is a great way to grow your skills and confidence, as well as to make new friends – and of course, earn some money!
Unisson Disability provides meaningful employment opportunities to assist you in reaching your career goals.
Our supported employment program allows you to learn new skills, earn a wage, make friends and thrive in your job. While we understand the importance of providing people with disability the opportunity to work in an open employment environment, some people require more support than others. Supported employment allows you to work with support while still making a meaningful contribution to the workforce.
Our varied work options and work environments mean you have a choice in where you work and what you do. Our employment opportunities include:
- Mail & Packaging (MailPlus)
- Mowing & Gardening (Mowmentus)
- Production & Assembly Tasks
Become part of our Mail & Packaging team at MailPlus and help us with pre-post and mailing, packaging and light assembly jobs for businesses.
The work is interesting and can vary from job to job. Types of work we do include:
- Packing cosmetics into gift boxes for department store displays;
- Folding letters and collating;
- Inserting and preparing mail for post, and
- Heat sealing packaging.
We also offer:
- Data cleansing and printing;
- Barcode printing;
- Variable date input;
- Letter collation and lodgement;
- Packaging and assembly;
- Pick and pack and light assembly work.
Apart from learning new skills, you’ll have the opportunity to make new friends as you work. Staff from Unisson Disability are there to support you. You’ll be shown what you need to do and taught how to do it.
Do you like spending time outdoors, working in the garden? If yes, then Unisson Disability’s Mowing & Gardening business, Mowmentus is for you.

Production & Assembly Tasks
Our Labour Hire service helps businesses with office or production/assembly tasks and provides work for people with a disability. As a supported employment program, all training is provided, and a member of the Unisson Disability team will support you.
School Leaver Employment Support
Finishing school can be really exciting but also a little daunting.
School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) (formerly known as Transition to Work), assists school leavers with making the transition to life after school.
Skills that you can learn through SLES include:
- Financial literacy
- Job searching
- Workplace communication
- Healthy living
- Computer skills
- Travel training
- Support to gain a Learner Licence
- Assistance to attend TAFE
- Support with coursework
Unisson Disability’s SLES program is flexible, allowing you to take control and choose what you want to do. Our team will work with you to develop a program tailored for you. Your program might include assistance to achieve a recognised qualification, put together a resume or find a job.
SLES will uncover your unique strengths, support you in achieving your personal employment goals, and provide you with valuable work-related and life skills that will help you to live your best life.
