Employment Consultant

Royal Society for the Blind of SA

Would you like to make a real difference? Are you a dynamic problem-solver who is passionate about assisting clients into rewarding work opportunities? Then why not join our RSB Employment Services and assist people who with your support can lead independent and rewarding lives.

RSB supports people to gain new skills, be engaged in life and grow confidence at home, at work and in their communities. Working together, RSB supports a culture of participation, meaning and purpose with the understanding that small changes can often have a powerful impact.

The RSB is currently seeking an Employment Consultant to join our Employment team across our five sites. In this role you will primarily be managing a caseload of clients with a disability, to identify and address their barriers to employment.

The role involves securing sustainable employment for clients and assisting them to become job ready by participating in relevant education and skills development programs. You need to be proactive in working with a range of providers, health professionals and other services staff to support RSB clients in securing employment and then in sustaining their employment long term. You will also be assisting NDIS participants, including those with School Leaver Employment Supports in their plans.

Another important component of the role is to actively identify opportunities in the local labor market by calling on potential employers and presenting RSB clients as employees which will meet their organisation’s needs.

The successful applicant will have:

  • Experience in Disability Employment Services or similar
  • Proven past performance, preferably in disability job placement
  • Good oral and written communication skills
  • Sound computer literacy and effective time management skills
  • A positive focus with a strong drive to meet performance targets
