Essential Personnel has consistently performed in the top 10% of Disability Employment Service Providers Australia wide, achieving a 4 or 5 star rating with the Department of Social Services.

An independent evaluation of Essential Personnel’s adherence to the Disability Service Standards states.

“Very good evidence was available demonstrating the commitment of Essential Personnel to the Disability Service Standards. There is clearly a culture within the organisation of focussing on the wellbeing of individuals, made evident through the individual’s interviews, staff interviews and file reviews at each location visited. It is acknowledged that Essential Personnel is providing a service to many individuals in very remote areas and successfully gaining good quality employment outcomes tailored to the specific aspirations of individuals despite the limitations existing compared to a metro environment.”

Since 1997 we have assisted over 1600 and have secured over 1300 jobs for people with intellectual, learning, physical, sensory, psychiatric and neurological disabilities. These clients have a diverse range of skills and abilities and we have assisted the clients to engage, gain and maintain employment and training of their choice.

We currently have offices located in Central Wheatbelt: Northam, Merredin, Moora and Armadale. Our North and East Metro Offices in Midland and Cannington are located close to public transport.

Essential Personnel will guide you every step of the way from assessment of eligibly, referrals, registration and commencement. We strive to reduce the red tape for clients and make the entry process as smooth as possible.
