April 27, 2012 (FPRC) -- The NSW Minister for Disability Services, Andrew Constance, has launched a new television commercial aimed at promoting the benefits of a career in the sector and the online job listing and portal www.carecareers.com.au.

carecareers, developed by the state's peak body for disability service providers National Disability Services (NDS) NSW, provides resources, advice and job opportunities to anyone thinking about a career in the sector.

Minister Andrew Constance said carecareers reflects the NSW Government's commitment to providing training and skilled opportunities for individuals to enter and pursue meaningful careers in the disability and community care sector.

"It is about changing people's perceptions about the breadth of activities and challenges in the sector, showing the human face and rewarding nature of the work available, Mr Constance said.

The commercial features the experiences of Talia Low, who has cerebral palsy, and the inspiring professionals who have helped support her journey to start high school.

"There has never been a better time to explore a career in the disability and community care sector. Employment is booming, with up to 10,000 new workers needed to fill a wide variety of roles providing support for more than 380,000 people by 2015, said Mike Field, Project Manager, Workforce Recruitment at National Disability Services.

"Recent research found that more than half the number of respondents recognised the disability and community care sector as providing rewarding work, far ahead of other major industry sectors including retail, mining and manufacturing. The sector offers a broad range of career choices, from speech pathologists and occupational therapists to drivers, gardeners and IT professionals.

"Students and young people, return-to-work parents and career changers will play a vital role in filling job vacancies and providing high-quality support services in the future. You can go online and take a quick picture-based career quiz to find out what type of job in the sector would suit you best, he said.
