DES Job Plan
A Job Plan lists what you will do to find and keep a job, and how a Disability Employment Services (DES) provider will help you.
A Job Plan tells you:
- the hours Centrelink has assessed you are capable of working. It bases this on its assessment of the effect your disability has on how much work you can do
- the steps you and your DES provider need to take to help you find and keep a job.
A Job Plan should help you to get ready for work, learn new skills, find a job and keep working.
- looking for and accepting work that is right for you
- going to appointments with your employment services provider (e.g. DES provider)
- going to job interviews
- other things that might help you find and keep a job.
