Work trials

Work trial placement

A work trial placement, which is similar to unpaid work experience, helps you:

  • build your capacity
  • develop new skills
  • increase your experience
  • make contacts in a new industry
  • gain a recent referee.

When a work trial is suitable

We’ll often recommend a work trial if we determine a person can no longer return to their pre-injury employer, especially if the duties are not suitable anymore.

“Participating in a work trial gave me the confidence and skills I needed to gain employment much sooner than I anticipated. It opened up opportunities to make connections with people within the industry and I am now employed and couldn’t be happier.”
– Jeremy, client

Employers – host a work trial

Hosting a work trial or work training placement for a few weeks or months is a great way to gain new employees at very little or no cost to you.

“Being able to support Incite Solution Group’s clients by providing work trial opportunities has been invaluable. It’s truly a win for all involved. We gain an extra resource to assist with our business needs while the client gains recent and relevant experience, assisting them to become more competitive to gain meaningful, sustainable employment.”
