Richard Montoni, Maximus

Maximus has won a five-year contract to help run a program for helping people with disabilities find employment in Australia, the company announced Thursday.

Through the Disability Employment Services Employment Support Service program, the company will provide case management services to individuals in the program by working with physicians, family members, employers and other stakeholders.

Australia’s Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations awarded the contract.

“The company has already placed 5,000 participants with disabilities in employment under a companion DES contract — achieving an average of more than four stars under the Australian government’s most recent DES Star Ratings,” CEO Richard Montoni said in a release.

Maximus will open five new employment sites in the country to complement the 50 sites it already has there.

The company also works with the department on the Disability Management Service program, which provides similar employment support services to people with disabilities that are not expected to require long-term support in the workforce.

According to Maximus, the ESS program supports job seekers who require more long-term, regular support in the workplace.
