Employment

We create jobs for people facing barriers to mainstream employment
"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."

“It’s given me something to do so that I won’t be bored. I’ve been able to get certificates for good work and I get along well with my supervisors.”

Here’s what our employees and their families say about Hoxton

Ryan
“I’ve made lots of friends. I’ve also now got money to do things that I couldn’t before. I’m getting to learn lots of new things too.”
Bill
“If I didn’t work here I’d have to stay home all the time, I hate staying home all alone. I have met good friends and get to talk to people. Without a job I wouldn’t have enough money to do the things I like to do.”
Nathan
“I’ve been able to learn new jobs, been involved with committees, become a quality checker. I’m now able to go to social outings but if I wasn’t working I’d be home alone.”
Brooke
“I’ve met new friends. I enjoy the social outings. I’m able to buy things I didn’t have before because I get paid. The jobs are really interesting and I’m learning new skills.”

Julie
“I like doing all different jobs, some are easy and some are hard. I have lots of friends and the staff are nice.”
Johnny
“If I didn’t work I wouldn’t get paid. I’m waiting on a new chair and the money I get from work goes towards what I want on my chair that isn’t funded. I have made good friends here and I get on well with the supervisors.”
Sergio
(former employee)
“People with disabilities don’t get accepted in a lot of workplaces but here they are accepted and appreciated by the supervisors. We make a lot of friends here, in the outside world we are seen as different but here they are seen as people not disabilities. I like working at Hoxton because it’s a safe environment. The people and supervisors are so friendly, lovely training officer and boss who understands us and isn’t hard on us but if we do something wrong they will come down on us.”
Anne
Lauren’s Mum
“Since Lauren has been working at Hoxton I have found that she is a lot more confident and is not worried about voicing her opinions anymore. She is also showing a much more mature attitude and doesn’t react to situations as quickly. She now has a good network of friends and she looks forward to going on the social outings that are held through work.”
Yoli
Ryan’s Aunt

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!
