TNT Signs Alliance with Disability Works Australia

Disability Works Australia (DWA) and TNT Australia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in Sydney recently aimed at improving the employment prospects of people with a disability.

TNT offers a comprehensive range of business to business express delivery services Australia-wide and in over 200 countries around the globe. The Australian operation comprises approximately 4,800 employees across all divisions and a fleet of around 2,400 vehicles. TNT's head office is located in Mascot Sydney, and comprises some 400 administration staff along with 56 depots across Australia .

DWA is funded by the Australian Government to provide a single point of contact for large private sector employers seeking information and advice about employing people with a disability.

DWA chief executive officer Tina Zeleznik said the signing of the agreement would continue to assist more people with a disability to enter the workforce and TNT offered a variety of roles from call centre to dockhands.

“More and more large employers like TNT are seeing that it makes good business sense to have a workforce that reflects the diversity in our society and their customer base.”

“We are thrilled when employers maintain a commitment to working towards increasing the number of employees in their workforce with a disability.”

“DWA can support the employer to ensure their recruitment processes are accessible for people with a disability, provide disability awareness training, coordinate workplace modifications, provide a pre-screening service and support by providing a single point of contact for recruiting people with a disability,” Ms Zeleznik said.

TNT National Recruitment Manager Wayne Noakes said “We at TNT are delighted to be working with DWA, as it enables us to adopt a national approach to recruiting people with a disability into the TNT organisation.”

“TNT aspires to be a leader in social accountability within the transportation industry by promoting a positive culture with respect to human rights and the continuous improvement of working conditions.”

“We seek to attract, develop, reward and retain outstanding individuals who appreciate the value of acting as a team. Our partnership with DWA will ensure our recruitment processes are accessible and attractive to people with a disability.”

DWA and TNT will jointly work together to roll out the recruitment of people with disabilities within each state across Australia .
