Confidence and a career

All over Australia, Disability Enterprises collectively employ more than 20,000 Australians with disability in a range of jobs. These jobs include gardeners, store people, maintenance workers, IT professionals, recyclers, caterers and many more.

BuyAbility partners with Disability Enterprises from across the country to find out when and where jobs are available. We can provide you with the right information to start your career in supported employment.



Barkuma is a leading Disability Enterprise in South Australia. It provides opportunities for people with disability to develop skills, confidence and experience in a working environment.

Currently, Barkuma has positions available at its Elizabeth and Holden Hill sites in confidential document destruction, food and cosmetic packaging, assembly, labelling and mail outs.
