A range of part-time, full-time, short and long-term employment options are available at BRI across our three Australian Disability Enterprise sites. These include real jobs in manufacturing, recycling, landscaping and maintenance services, timber production or packaging.
Applicants are assessed using a Competency Based Wages System and are required to work for at least eight hours per week.
BRI matches participants with the type of work and location most suited to their capabilities and interests, always with a view to ensuring they have choices and opportunities to live a self-determined life.
Transition to employment
We support our participants to transition to paid employment via a number of pathways.
School leavers may opt to enroll in an eight-week "Work Readiness" course facilitated by Federation College. During this program, participants spend two hours per week learning new "work-ready" skills, whilst gaining valuable "on-the- job" experience in paid employment at BRI.
At the completion of the course, participants are assessed for entry or referred to an alternative placement.
BRI also helps participants transition to employment through collaborate placement opportunities at open employment services.
