About Jigsaw

Jigsaw offers a new and innovative approach to the challenge of supporting people with disability to enter or re-enter the workforce.

The revelation at the heart of the Jigsaw model is very simple: people prepare best for work in work.

As a result, we have built the Jigsaw model on the foundation of a working, sustainable social business; a genuine business, which acts as a training ground, serves as an employer, and truly prepares participants for mainstream work. Jigsaw’s services are document and data management, and to date we have worked with over 50 corporate and government clients.

Within the context of this working social enterprise, we bring together three supports:

Jigsaw LEARNING provides practical training, skill-development and work experience opportunities for people with disability, focused on work-readiness.

Jigsaw OUTSOURCING delivers digitisation contracts for corporate and government clients, which creates immediate jobs for people with disability, paid at award wages.

Once trained and experienced, Jigsaw TEMPS places workers into similar roles within mainstream companies.

The Role

Are you an exceptional administrator looking to apply your skills in one of Australia’s leading social businesses? If you have a passion for continuous improvement, best practice, creating efficiencies, and enabling others to do their jobs better, then we need you!

We need someone with high bandwidth, versatility and willingness to go the extra mile to free up the General Manager and Executive leadership to focus on strategy and growth.

This role would suit a sharp recent graduate with aspirations to be a leader one day, looking to start their journey and make their mark. Come to work knowing that your support is enabling an innovative social business to grow and light the way in the employment of people with disability.
