At Maxima we understand the barriers to employment and are passionate about providing a job to anyone with a disability, injury or health condition, including mental illness.

As a leading national, not-for-profit DES provider, Maxima goes the extra mile, offering specialist assistance to anyone with a disability, injury or health condition, including a mental illness, to prepare you both physically and mentally for work and to help you maintain your employment for life.

Within DES there are two key programs providing support to people with a disability, injury or health condition:

  1. Disability Management Service, a program for people with a disability, injury or health condition who require assistance from a DES provider but are not expected to need long-term support in the workplace; and

  2. Employment Support Service, a program for people with a permanent or chronic  disability, injury or illness, who are assessed as needing longer-term ongoing support, including in the workplace.

Within each DES program you can expect:

  • Regular face-to-face meetings with your personal Consultant;
  • To be respected and valued for your skills and abilites;
  • Opportunities to gain new skills and qualifications;
  • Access to work experience opportunities; and
  • Access to services that will help you to overcome and manage other barriers to employment
