Disability employment

Disability touches all aspects of our business. Our customers, suppliers and team members have different needs and abilities and we’re richer for it. It also means we’re continually working behind the scenes to ensure our stores, workplaces and digital platforms are as accessible as they can be.

We encourage and support the employment of people with disability and we’re committed to building a team that’s representative of the local communities we’re part of.

No barriers to success

To help you overcome any barriers to working with us, we’ve partnered with Disability Works Australia and MAX Solutions, who have specialist knowledge and help us place motivated people into great positions within Coles Group.

We also work with the Australian Network on Disability (we’re a gold member) to educate our team members on disability, accessibility and inclusion, to make sure people with disability are well integrated across all aspects of our business.

Making adjustments to support you

During the recruitment process, we know we might need to make some adjustments; including alternative formats to the recruitment process, so we can get to know you in the best possible way. Let us know, we’re happy to accommodate.

Once you join Coles as a team member, if there are changes that need to be made to your workplace or workstation so you can perform your best, we’ll work with you to develop an appropriate solution.

Please email us at inclusionrecruitment@coles.com.au if you’d like any assistance with the selection process or your potential work environment.
