Company Profile

Community AXIS Enterprises Inc. (CAEI) is a not for profit organisation based in Victoria and South East South Australia and trading as AXIS Employment and AXIS Worx.

From its humble beginning back in 1991 as Wimmera Job Match to the industry leading organisation it is today, AXIS Employment has grown from strength to strength and has changed the lives of thousands of Job Seekers along the way. 

For over 25 years our organisation has successfully delivered government funded disability services to people with disability in the Grampians region.

In 2012 AXIS Employment successfully tendered to provide Disability Employment Service in 5 additional Employment Service Area's (ESA's) The expansion into the Eureka, Bendigo, Sunraysia, Mid Murray and South East SA areas was a momentous milestone in our long history of providing quality employment services to people with disability, illness and injury. It reflected the Government’s recognition of the quality outcomes we provide to Job Seekers and Employers and their faith in us to replicate this service in other areas.

More success came in 2016 when we were awarded a new contract through the Department of Jobs and Small Business (formally Dept. of Employment) called Transition to Work (TtW), which we currently operate in Horsham, Mildura and Swan Hill. The program is designed to assist young people, aged 15-21, to re-engage in either work or education. 

In early 2018, exciting news came through that AXIS Employment had been successful in applying for new business in an additional 2 ESA's, Hampden and Western District in Victoria. Along with the new sites, we were also successful in our application to operate Disability Management Services (DMS) in all 8 of our ESA's. The prospect of being able to span an even bigger area and service more Job Seekers than ever before is fantastic news and we know that when we apply the winning "AXIS" formula in these new ESA's, it makes a huge impact not only on our Job Seekers, but the wider community. Something we are extremely proud of.  

The Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) arm of our organisation came about in April 2011. Community AXIS Enterprises Inc. amalgamated with AXIS Worx, formerly known as The Wool Factory and was contracted by the Department Social Services (formally the Dept. of Families, Housing, Community Service and Indigenous Affairs) to deliver the Disability Employment Assistance Program. Four separate enterprises operate within AXIS Worx: E Worx, Wood Worx, Pak Worx and Harvest Delights. The Government provided funding for up to 43 Supported Employees, all with differing levels of permanent disability employed at the ADE. In October 2017, AXIS Worx began transitioning over to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and as of July 2018, will be completely funded by the new scheme. The NDIS allows AXIS Worx to provide supported employment to more participants, rather than being capped at 43 places. 

CAEI is certified to the International Quality Systems ISO 9001, ISO 14001, AS-NZS 5377 and the National Standards for Disability Services. Our organisation is dedicated to continuous improvement. Underpinning this commitment to quality are our recruitment policies which ensure we employ professional, qualified and empathetic staff to assist our most important assets – our Job Seekers, Employers, Supported Employees and Customers.
