About ADE

Intelife’s Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) is a commercial operation providing employment opportunities for people with disability in a ‘supported’ work environment.

‘Supported’ means individualised assistance is given, where necessary, so you can do your job successfully.

 

What we can offer you

We want to help you find and maintain meaningful, long-term employment that is right for you.

Our unique approach allows you to work in small teams of up to four individuals with one supervisor, rather than in large groups. This ensures the best level of support is always provided.

We can offer you a variety of employment options, ranging from commercial office cleaning and roadside beautification, to grounds maintenance and sand sifting, to contract packaging, labelling, collation and assembly. We also work closely with customers and encourage them to tell us if there are other types of work they would like us to do.

 

How we can help you

We are committed to empowering our participants to gain the skills, experience and ongoing training they need to progress towards work goals and gain greater workplace independence.

We also offer:

  • work experience opportunities
  • skills training and development
  • employment assistance planning
  • career development
  • a dedicated training department
  • independent transport assistance

ADE receives funding from the Department of Family and Community Services.

 

Wages & conditions

We offer employment opportunities seven days a week at various locations across Perth, as well as in the Peel and South West regions.

As one of our employees, you are entitled to the same rights and conditions as everyone else. This includes award-based fortnightly wages, leave entitlements, such as annual, sick, parental and study leave, and superannuation.

There are a few things you need to consider before you enter the workforce. Are you:

  • motivated to work?
  • willing and able to work between eight and 38 hours per week?
  • committed to achieving goals outlined in your Employment Assistance Plan?
  • willing to learn new skills and apply these to work tasks?
  • ready to work towards customer quality standards?
  • committed to working within workplace Occupational Health and Safety guidelines?

If you answered “yes” to these questions and you are eligible for the Disability Support Pension, then you are ready to work with us.

Call us to find out how we can help you.
