WISE Employment is a not for profit organisation that has been empowering jobseekers to find meaningful work and become self-sufficient since 1992. WISE helps employers to find the right staff by understanding their needs and providing them with workers from diverse backgrounds. Each year, passionate and skilled WISE staff place over 6,000 people in jobs in Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales and Northern Territory.
Since 2001, WISE has invested $3.5 million in surplus funds into innovative projects to support the most disadvantaged in our communities including people with disability, mental illness, youth, ex-offenders, refugees and Indigenous people. WISE operates four socially inclusive companies or social enterprises, employing 220 people. At the core of the organisation is the belief that the entire community is enriched when everyone is supported to achieve their potential.
WISE brought its employment services knowledge, experience and skills to the UK market, founding WISE Ability in 2009. WISE Ability has offices in Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham. With a proven track record of meeting employer needs, WISE Ability staff support thousands of people to secure sustainable employment every year.
