Advantage Injury Management Services can provide you with a wide range of vocational rehabilitation services. Vocational rehabilitation services are primarily utilised when an injured worker is unable to return to their pre-injury employment role. Our injury management advisors are happy to discuss the services that may be most beneficial in assisting your worker to return to gainful employment, whether that be through internal redeployment or external job application.
The range of vocational rehabilitation services includes:
A vocational assessment is used to explore alternative employment opportunities and/or study alternatives for a worker, should they be unable to return to work in their pre-injury employment role.
Use of a transferable skills analysis is recommended when an assessment of a clients range of transferable skills is required, with the view to identify employment roles that they would be suited to with minimal training or support.
Labour market research is evidential support for career transition or change of employment.
The use of host employment is beneficial in providing on the job training and return to work opportunities in a new employment role. This can be with a pre-injury or alternative organisation. Advantage Injury Management Services will liaise with the client to ensure that the host employment placement meets their skill set and interests.
Job search training provides support for workers to prepare for, apply for and transition into new employment. Such programs cover resume development, how to complete job search, self assessment exercises, and interview techniques. We will teach clients of all educational levels how to use emails, and to use a range of medium to seek employment.
Our career transition program is typically a 12 week tailored program, aimed at assisting employees to identify alternative employment and provision of support through the process of securing meaningful, paid employment.
We will work with clients to develop resumes specific to their needs and job search. Where possible, we encourage clients to write their own resumes with our support, to ensure that resumes truly reflect individual personalities and employment history.
