GradWISE graduate disability employment - WISE Employment

GradWISE graduate disability employment


GradWISE is a graduate program, developed by WISE Employment in conjunction with Australian Universities. The program is designed to empower graduates and tertiary students living with a disability, mental, physical health condition or injury aspire, develop and thrive in graduate jobs and entry level employment.

GradWISE draws on WISE Employment’s decades of experience in delivering employment services since 1992. Over this time, we have helped hundreds of thousands of job seekers into work from all walks of life, across all industries and occupations, who have been unemployed for as little a day, or for much longer.

Competition for graduate jobs and entry level roles can be quite intense, often around 30:1. GradWISE aims to complement your studies, and equip you with a portfolio of skills, knowledge and experiences that helps you to compete for your big break once your studies are complete.

Partnership with Australian Universities

Combining the strengths of WISE and Universities, the primary aim of GradWISE is to provide eligible students identified as living with a disability, mental or physical health condition or injury with access to additional specialist assistance on campus. The program aims to obtain employment opportunities for students commensurate with their interests, aspirations and qualifications.

GradWISE provides customised coaching and support to complement universities’ support in one-on-one, small group and online settings. A large part of GradWISE’s role is understanding employer needs and assisting them with their diversity and inclusion ambitions whilst providing support to both the employee and employer once a successful match is made and for as long as needed.

If this sounds like the kind of support you have been searching for, you can email us and our team will get in touch with you to have a chat about GradWISE and how we can best help you.
