At Ventia we are proud of our diverse workforce and are passionate about providing opportunities for people with a disability.

Amrita Ramjas and Rebecca Teale are employed at Ventia's Parramatta office as greeters as well as undertaking office administration tasks.

Darren Keys is Cleaner In Charge at Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School where he has worked for 26 years.

Amrita and Rebecca have Down Syndrome, while Darren is hearing impaired.

Darren is one of 33 people with a disability employed on the NSW Whole of Government Schools cleaning contract, and there are plans to hire more people with a disability as cleaners.

Ventia Disability and Social Inclusion Manager, NSW Schools Daniel Osgood said he was proud that Ventia was committed to ensuring its workforce was more representative of the wider community.

"We are passionate about providing opportunities for people with a disability, as well as those members of the community from a background of disadvantage," Mr Osgood said.

"We employ people with a range of disabilities, from anxiety disorders to autism spectrum, to hearing impairments, amputees and other disabilities that do not prevent employees from performing their tasks safely.

We encourage all employers to focus on ability, and consider employment opportunities within their organisation to help break the cycle of disadvantage in our communities.

On International Day of People with Disability, we celebrate the valuable contribution our team members with disabilities make to our business and their community.


International Day of People with Disability is held each year on 3 December. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with a disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
