Employ Me Project

About the Employ Me Project

The Employ Me Project is an initiative of The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania in collaboration with Tasmanian and mainland project partners.

Employ Me offers a 10 step program that supports participants to develop their confidence and capacity to gain employment, volunteering and/or further educational opportunities. The program is available to people living with brain injury in South Australia, wider Hobart and rural and remote Tasmania, people with cognitive impairment in the Tasmanian criminal justice system and young people with disability in Tasmania.

The Employ Me Project is funded by The Australian Government Department of Social Services.

The Employ Me Project offers a program featuring…

  • Specialist, co-designed methodology and resources - Both the 10 step methodology and the workbooks are designed specifically for, and with input from, people with brain injury.
  • Capacity building - Participating in the program involves working with an Employ Me project officer through the evaluation, capacity building and video filming and production stages. Each stage supports a participant to reflect on and identify their needs and strengths.
  • Video production - The succinct 3-6 minute “About Me” video produced through the program can be used in applying for jobs, shared with a Disability Employment Service to further support job seeking, communicating needs to an employer, or perhaps for storing away to review one’s personal growth and increased ability over time.

An example of the Employ Me project videography component can be found in the player below.
