Welcome to NOVA Employment...

NOVA is a supported employment program that offers specialist job seeking assistance and post placement support. We find jobs in the general community, at award wage. NOVA works exclusively with people who have a disability or significant barriers to work and we have an excellent record of success and meaningful career development. Staff from our Campbelltown office also support people who are deaf or hearing impaired. NOVA is not a sheltered workshop, or 'business service'

100 jobs in 100 days


It's not every day a jobseeker with a disability gets a job - but it can be!

In 2014 we launched our first '100 jobs in 100 days' campaign across Greater Sydney.

Business owners and companies from across the St George and Sutherland Shires, Nepean and Macarthur regions were introduced to jobseekers who matched the roles they needed to fill.

Nepean 2016 marks our best campaign yet, with an outstanding 160 jobs secured by people with disabilities as varied as the types of work.

From family-owned shops to warehousing, manufacturing, real estate and hospitality, people with hearing impairment, Asperger's, Downs Syndrome and intellectual disabilities are getting a 'fair go' - the right to work, earn money and pay taxes, like everyone else.

Sponsorship and Donations

Sponsorship and Donations

Each year NOVA assists many hundreds of people to enter the workforce. To do this we find, train and provide material support to dozens of staff. This costs a lot of money and NOVA funding from the Australian Government to carry this work out however, there is still enormous unmet need.

In 2002, NOVA began a formal program of fundraising. We now receive more than $100,000 annually in donations and goods. Our sponsors range from the very large (our genuine thanks to Mr. Gates and Microsoft) to the very small - annual membership of NOVA's association costs $3.

The cost of taking a person with an intellectual disability, finding suitable employment and providing appropriate post-placement support is approximately $7000. Every little bit helps. If you'd like to support our work financially we offer the following benefits:

  • As a registered charity, donations over $2 are tax-deductible (check with your accountant)
  • All donations over $10 are listed on our Champions Board
  • Corporate sponsors receive recognition on our website(s) and on other promotional material where applicable
