Who Are We?
Olympus Solutions provide employment services and are a member of the ‘Ability Options Community’. From 33 offices across NSW, each year we support over 12,500 jobseekers including parents, Indigenous communities, school leavers and people with disability to prepare for, gain and maintain employment.
We are committed to a workplace culture that recognises diversity, equity and human rights. We respect and value the contribution of people from all cultures, backgrounds and beliefs, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people and people with disability.
Ability Options works in partnership with Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District Mental Health Services in the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Model of Supported Employment. This model has been proven to be the most effective model of Disability Employment Services for people with mental health support needs.

You will do this through reverse-marketing and the creation of strong employer links, thorough, person-centred case management and working closely with the mental health team to provide suitable clinical interventions targeted at gaining and sustaining employment.
You will assist participants through the entire lifecycle of Employment Services, starting from Employment Assistance through to Post-Placement Support, and you will be based with your partner Mental Health Team.
