Disabled Employment New Zealand

Many highly capable New Zealanders could be part of the workforce if barriers to their employment were removed. 74% of disabled people want to work. This website will help remove barriers.

Information to help break down barriers to employment for employers and disabled people wanting to enter the workforce. Disabled people are less likely to be employed than the general population or other minorities. Employment for disabled people is often limited by opportunity and employers attitudes rather than disability.

Disability in employment advise, employment for disabled people should not have such high barriers when most of the time they are not needed, mention the word 'disabled' or 'impairment' and many employers put up barriers, they immediately think expensive' or 'too hard, but for so many employees, that 'disability' or 'impairment' is barely noticeable.

Having been labeled a disabled person since the age of 10, I have developed a passion for wanting to make the New Zealand a more work accessible place. I was one of the lucky ones I personally found work in the electronics industry were most of my work was done sitting down I became very well qualified, and always quickly worked my way up the ladder at my places of employment by my mid twenties I had become self employed and successful many disabled want to work. My June 2018 research shows me there is a lot of outdated information online. Disabled Employment is going to put as much up to date information as we are able to fine to help disabled people find work. NorthAble is normally up to date so please inquire when you need to.
