ACC Supported Employment / Employment Placement Service
The ACC Supported Employment service is for job seekers who have been referred to EmploymentWorks! from ACC, through the National Serious Injury Service (NSIS) or Recover Independence Service(RIS) Teams throughout the Auckland Region, and it is for job seekers who have experienced a serious injury such as brain injury or spinal injury.
Our professional team of employment specialists will support each individual using a partnership approach to pursue their employment goals for as long as it takes; this is not sheltered work, nor work preparation, but 'real jobs for real pay'.
The service has had excellent results in supporting those who have experienced a serious injury to either re-access the workforce in a similar career or start something entirely new. Either way, this supports the individual with a renewed confidence to get back on a career pathway and start moving forward towards independence once more.
