Who We Are
Jobedge is a new name and a new vision for Disability Employment Services. While our company is new, our team has been helping people take the next step in employment, health and wellbeing for over 30 years.
We are a South Australian company that brings together the knowledge of experienced medical practitioners with the expertise of the national employment services provider, PeoplePlus.
It makes us different. Our job coaches have daily access to general practitioners who provide medical insight into job search planning. This means our clients (both participants and employers) can have added confidence as they progress.
