What’s the social or environmental cause your enterprise addresses?
Jigsaw is about reshaping the pathway to open employment for Australians with disability.
Different from a Disability Employment Service, Jigsaw’s holistic approach starts from the very basics of work-readiness training all the way through to supported transition to mainstream employment. It ensures our trainees gain transferable skills relevant to every workplace and paid professional experience along the way.
All of Jigsaw Digital’s services are delivered by people with disability, paid at award-wage. Just 53% of people with disability are employed, compared with 83% in the mainstream. Jigsaw’s work-based employment pathway, which takes people through work-skills training, paid work experience and support to transition to a mainstream job, addresses the system barriers behind this imbalance.
When a customer uses Jigsaw Digital’s services, they are contributing to a future where people with disability are fully included in the Australian workforce.
We believe people prepare best for work, through work!
What is your hope for the future?
Jigsaw has a very simple vision for the future: an Australia in which people with disability are fully included in the workforce. We believe people prepare best for work, through work.

* 750 Trainees Supported
* 98 Employed at Award Wage
* 53Transitioned Into Mainstream Employment
Our goal by 2025 is to train 1,000 people with disability for employment and create 600 award wage jobs.
