Other schemes, such as the Enabling Employment Credit, also help to provide financial support to employers.

This grant helps employers to recruit and retain persons with disabilities by supporting up to 90% of the job redesign costs, capped at $20,000 per employee with disability, whichever is lower.

It can be used to defray the cost for the following job redesign initiatives:

  • Purchase of equipment
  • Workplace modifications
  • Redesigning of job scopes or processes
  • Consultancy Services

To apply for the Job Redesign Grant, employers are to complete the Job Redesign Application Form and email to opendoor@sgenable.sg. An officer will contact you for further follow-up.

Recruitment, Job Placement & Job Support Services

You can get recruitment assistance through the ODP Job Portal, and get up to 12 months of job support.

For every person with disability placed by our appointed partners — Autism Resource Centre, Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and SPD — up to 1 year of job support for your new employees will be provided.
