“I used to be quiet and never spoke. I now go out places and now I’m a lot more confident. This place has saved my life. I’ve learnt things at work that help me at home as well like cooking and cleaning.”
At Hoxton, success is measured by the impact we have on the lives of our employees. Providing disability employment is what we are passionate about.
Hence over the past 50 years we’ve learned that participating in work transforms lives in ways people don’t expect.
We have a workforce filled with happy, proud, confident and productive people. They give their best because they know that’s appreciated.
At Hoxton everyone is welcome.
Hoxton is passionate about providing disability employment. First of all we want everyone to be happy in our work places while feeling like valued members of our community.
Jobs can be full-time or part-time in our sites at Ingleburn, West Hoxton and Villawood.
Our hours are Monday to Friday 8:00am—3:40pm.
Employees are paid an hourly rate linked to an Award, so determined through individual productivity-based wage assessments.
Everyone receives typical workplace entitlements including sick leave, holidays and superannuation because those things are important.
Even more, we have a Rostered Day Off (RDO) once a month as well as an active social club.
All our sites are accessible by public transport.

When Ryan joined Hoxton Industries in January 2014 my first impression of the workplace was “wow” as it was clear that Hoxton was run very professionally and that it was more than just a place of employment – it was a hub where relationships are built and friendships are formed.
It was clear from the outset that Ryan would thrive here. He has developed skills he didn’t even know he had – work wise, emotionally and socially.
Ryan is supported in doing something different every day, expanding his skills and giving him the courage to continue to develop.
His confidence has increased immensely – and the knowledge that he is contributing to the workforce, home and the community gives him a sense of pride in himself he didn’t previously have. Ryan is a changed person since starting at Hoxton. Because of all the help and support he receives, he is happier, healthier and more confident than we ever thought possible.
Hoxton has given him the sense of responsibility and dedication required to hold down a job – and he has forged new friendships which enrich his life.
He can’t wait to go to work every day because he just loves it! Every day is a great day for Ryan at Hoxton Industries!
