Helping Injured Workers Get Back into the Workforce
Injury often results in a reduced work capacity that can lead to alternative employment options being assessed. Following this assessment, job preparation and job seeking assistance may also be required to provide the employee with the necessary skills to successfully transition to alternative employment.
At KINNECT we understand that the job searching and interview process can be difficult, especially considering the functional limitations that injury can cause.
How it Works
- Vocational Assessment and counselling
- Resume review / development
- Advice on injury disclosure techniques
- Interview skills training
- Review of job search skills and job searching
- Ongoing support with job applications
- Research and enrolment into retraining courses to upgrade the worker’s skills (pending approval)
- Opportunity for host employment to gain experience and demonstrate capacity to work
Job Preparation Services
What is the goal of Job Preparation Assistance?
KINNECT’s Job Preparation Assistance ensures the worker is job ready by educating them on today’s job market requirements to increase their success in obtaining alternative employment.
Who conducts Job Preparation Assistance?
Tertiary qualified Psychologist, Rehabilitation Counsellor or an Occupational Therapist.
Where can a worker receive Job Preparation Assistance?
We understand that traveling to a KINNECT clinic may not be feasible, particularly given driving restrictions are common following an injury. We can meet the worker in the following locations:
- KINNECT clinic
- Worker’s home
- Café close to the worker’s home
- Any other suitable community location
- Via Skype, phone or email
