NQ Employment has been my disability service provider for more than two years now.

When I was looking for work, Debbie, my case worker was instrumental in keeping me motivated and building up my confidence with her kind words and gentle enthusiasm. Now that I have a job, she has helped me stay in employment with ongoing encouragement, advice and problem-solving strategies.

All the staff at NQ Employment are friendly, polite and helpful. They have always gone that one step further to ensure that I have all the assistance I need whether it’s helping me get vital medical equipment or just listening when I’ve had a trying week.

I’m very grateful to Gene, Debbie and the rest of the staff at NQ Employment for their ongoing support and their commitment and dedication to their consumers.

I wish their organisation all the very best for their future.

I am the Manager of National Autoglass Supplies Australia Pty Ltd based in Townsville and I have employed a profoundly deaf person was sent to me by North Queensland Competitive Employment Service.

I must say that I had my reservations about employing a deaf person at the time however he has now been with the company 15 months and I have found him to be an asset to this company. He is hard working, loyal, is very intelligent and is always on time.

My initial concerns were that we may have difficulty communicating with him however this was not the case. He fitted into the group with no problems whatsoever. He has become my most valuable employee. I would suggest that any business prepared to give people with a disability a fair go will find themselves better for it.
