Sign for Work supports deaf and hard of hearing people to find and stay in work. The deaf and hearing members in the specialist team are fluent in Auslan and English and can meet all your communication needs.
The Sign for Work team is aware of the barriers you can face with a hearing loss when looking for employment. We work one to one, help you find the job you want and support you to maintain work.
We can help you build your resume, support you in your job search and interview process. Once you get a job, we will support you for as long as you need it. We often help people move into their next job on their individual career journey.
We offer Deaf Awareness Training and Auslan in the Workplace so you, your managers and co-workers can communicate effectively with you.
Whether you are returning to work or it’s your first job, Sign for Work can help! Contact us to discuss your eligibility.
