Enabled Employment makes it easy for businesses to fill skill gaps. 

The company is a commercial private entity with an entirely new approach to eliminating barriers to employment for people with a disability.  Enabled Employment has brought together multiple innovative elements to make this happen including the use of remote work, the employment agency business model and the latest cloud technology to make the process easy for businesses and candidates.

All staff at management level and candidates of Enabled Employment are people with disability, ex-Australian Defence Force personnel or family. The enterprise is unique – operating in a private sector environment and employing on the basis of positive discrimination. The company is proud to engender a culture which recognises people with disability and other inclusion groups have skills and talents which are highly valuable to businesses, and to the company itself.
