Finding & Keeping A Job
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 Works is the business arm of Unisson Disability, providing meaningful employment opportunities to people with disability.
Our supported employment program allows you to learn new skills, earn a wage, make friends and reach your career goals. 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.
The skills and training available at Unisson Works can assist you to either make the transition to open employment or continue your growth in supported employment.
Our varied work options and work environments mean you have a choice in where you work and what you do. Unisson Works has two business units:
- Our mail and packaging business, Pack Works
- Our mowing and gardening business, Ground Works
Become part of our mail & packaging team at Pack Works 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. We have a warehouse based in Thornleigh, and visit some customers on site. 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
- Heat sealing packaging
- Barcode printing
- 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 Pack Works are there to support you. You’ll be shown what you need to do and taught how to do it.Read More
