AXIS Employment Bendigo is proud to have been selected to be a part of the Autism@work Pilot Program.
The Department of Social Services (DSS) Autism@Work program is helping Disability Employment Services (DES) providers to connect employers and autistic candidates to create the start of career journeys for more people on the autism spectrum. The goal of this initiative is to create greater employment success for jobseekers on the autism spectrum.
Eight sites have been identified to participate in the pilot. The selection of providers was based upon consistently high caseloads of participants with autism. The sites were a selection of metropolitan and regional locations. The identified sites are located in: Gold Coast and Brisbane in Queensland; two in Bendigo in Victoria; Penrith and Wollongong in New South Wales; and Gawler and Murraylands in South Australia.
