Looking for a personalised employment program in Far North Queensland?  We’ve got you covered.

Maxima’s School Leaver Employment Support Program and Finding and Keeping a job

The Maxima difference – for us, it’s all about building relationships. Our SLES & Finding and Keeping a job programs are both created to provide an individual and holistic approach, tailored to each person’s unique needs and style. We work on a 1:1 basis and walk beside our customers to build their skills and confidence to achieve an end-goal of employment.

Whether it’s working on time management, body language, workplace behaviour or conflict resolution, we’ll customise a program to specifically target skills to help a person start a job and keep it!
Doing meaningful work that you enjoy can be very rewarding and satisfying –but it also has many other benefits, such as creating new friendships, building your confidence and earning your own
money to spend on activities you enjoy.

We’ll consider your career goals, your abilities and skills, and we’ll also explore which jobs and industries most interest you – and we’ll work with you to build your capacity for work.
We’ll use our networks and consultants to find – or create – the right job opportunities for you, including relevant work experience openings. At Maxima we focus on your abilities, not your disabilities.

SLES is available to NDIS participants from the end of year 11, and for up to two years. An NDIS participant could have SLES available in their plan right up to the age of 22. Finding and Keeping a job is for NDIS participants over 22. This means our Cairns consultants can not only set a person up for job success, but also see them through for a meaningful start to a career.

Other areas of support could include:
• Body Language
• Communication
• Career styling
• Community Participation
• Conflict Resolution
• Cover Letter
• Deportment & Grooming
• Employment Expectations
• Goal Setting
