Manager David Budd introduces himself DeafJobs: NOVA Employment has a speciality service to help the Deaf or people with a hearing impairment into work. We opened this office in January and since then have found hundreds of jobs for people who are Deaf or hearing impaired.
We offer specialist job seeking assistance and post placement support. We find jobs in the general community, at award wage.
Members of our team also work as far south as Wollongong. NOVA is not a sheltered workshop, or 'business service'. Mel had lots of energy for this task and, with help from members of the Deaf community; we opened in with Melanie as our Campbelltown Manager.
The Campbelltown team have always been highly motivated and successful. As a result, the program went very well and after Melanie moved on, David Budd took over as Manager. Not only did our Deaf program grow, we also began to work with people who have other disability.
Our team grew in size - up to 11 staff by While it has been good to see the teams success help NOVA to develop, we didn't want to see our Deaf program become swallowed up and lose its ability to properly support people who are Deaf or hearing impaired.
Although we haven't moved, we've made some changes within the office so that our Deaf jobseekers have their own space and staff working in this area are all Auslan skilled.
We also decided to move our Deaf program to its own piece of cyberspace - www. Again, this is to make sure we don't lose our identity as a specialist service for the Deaf.
We are trying to make sure this website not only helps you to find a job, but also provides a place for information and advice on where to find other services for Deaf, information that may be of use for employment, education and training and any other resources you think might help other Deaf.
If you would like to contribute to this website with a video, information, links or suggest any changes to make this a more useful place you can email us here.Who am I?

A deaf person will understand a hearing person's message even with mistakes, just as a hearing person will usually understand the spoken message of a person just learning.
“Hearing-impaired” was a well-meaning term that is not accepted or used by many deaf and hard of hearing people. For many people, the words “deaf” and “hard of hearing” are not negative. Instead, the term “hearing-impaired” is viewed as negative. The term focuses on what people can’t do.
