Maybe you would like to work in retail, at one of our Social Enterprises, be an electrician, or even run your own business – whatever your employment goals are, Yooralla can support you to pursue them by providing job skills training and building pathways into employment.

What is customised employment?

Customised employment is designed to build your confidence and independence and provide you with more control over your job opportunities – empowering you to land a job that’s right for you.

Our experienced, qualified job coaches will take the time to get to know you, helping you to discover your career interests, what you enjoy at work, your strengths and any support you may need at work. They will then work closely with you, your support network and potential employer to find or create a job that matches your skills and interests. Once you’re in the job, we will also provide you with ongoing on-the-job support, as required.

We know you’re a great addition to any workplace! The aim of our customised employment program is to find a job that feels important to you, is matched to your skills, where you can excel, and your unique contribution is valued.

How does customised employment work at Yooralla?

There are three phases in the customised employment program at Yooralla. These include:

1. The discovery phase


2. Job planning


3. Post-employment support
