AccessAbility Day

What is AccessAbility Day?

AccessAbility Day is an Australian Government initiative that encourages employers to connect with jobseekers with disability to see their potential in the workplace. The initiative runs in the last week of November every year.

AccessAbility Day is not a job interview, work trial or work experience. It is a job shadowing opportunity for jobseekers with a disability to try a day in a workplace and see what that workplace has to offer. There is no obligation for employers, it is a chance to see the potential that jobseekers with disability can bring to the workplace and learn about available business support.

If you are an employer


AccessAbility Day provides an opportunity for your organisation to;

– learn more about working with jobseekers with disability
– promote and encourage an inclusive workplace
– access a talent pool of capable people who are keen to work
– learn more about free disability employment services and support available for employers.

An employer can host as many participants across as many job types as they are able to provide within their organisation. However, each participant can only be placed in each workplace for one day.

To participate, contact breakthru by completing the form on this page to register your interest or complete the jobaccess registration form here.
