Disability Action Job Match

Job Match – Help to find and stay in paid work

Helping disabled people to find the job for them, rather than just ‘A Job’

Looking for and trying to get a new job can be a bit overwhelming. Our Job Match Supported Employment Officers (SEOs) can help with your Job Search & Job Preparation – helping you to find and stay in paid work.

Located across N.Ireland the Job Match team can support you – from updating a CV and matching your skills to get a job, completing a job application and preparing for interview to progress into paid work – to helping you explore a new business idea and support you on the road to self-employment.

The team will work with both you and local employers in your local area to get the right job for you.

  • Help with job searching
  • Improve your confidence
  • Help you with a CV

Disability Action Job Match How does Job Match work?

The great thing about Job Match is that the support you get is tailored specifically to you.  We can provide:

  • 1 to 1 support
  • Help to find work near your home
  • Job sampling/tasters
  • Work placements
  • Matching your skills to getting a job
  • Support in work
  • Support to develop your career

You can get help from Job Match if you:

  • Have a disability that means you need some type of support to work
  • Are aged 16 or over
  • Are currently unemployed or on benefits
  • Are able to take up paid work

Our support doesn’t stop when you leave the Job Match programme:

Our team’s support doesn’t stop when a participant leaves Job Match; we provide an additional period of pastoral support to help them to sustain their job. As a result, we continue to grow the numbers of people in sustained jobs six months after leaving Job Match – currently nearly 50% (August 2021).
