Do you want meaningful paid employment in the community, a career or even a business of your own? One where you and your support needs are understood and valued?

Experience the difference of Scope Customised Employment.

Customised Employment is designed to build your confidence and give you more control over your employment outcomes.

Scope’s qualified Customised Employment specialists take the time to get to know you, your family, and your support situation. We help you discover your career interests, strengths, skills and capabilities — before exploring your best employment options.

We work with you and your support network to develop the right employment pathway, incorporating your skills and ideal workplace conditions.

We then work with inclusive employers to understand their business requirements and help to create a role where your contribution is valued, and your support needs are recognised.

It’s all about empowering you to experience the many benefits of working.

How does Customised Employment work?

Backed by research and used in the United States for over 20 years, Customised Employment has proven to be incredibly successful in helping people with significant disability to participate in open employment.

Your Customised Employment specialist will take you through four key stages. At each stage, you get full support — from Discovery, through to Post-employment Support.

This process can take time. We want to help you get the right job, not any job.
