What is already known on this topicCognitive remediation is a learning‐based, cognitive skills training intervention that aims to drive enduring and generalised improvements, in neurocognitive, social cognitive, and/or psychosocial domains.It is an intervention that has proven to be effective in improving occupational outcomes. Moreover, CR boosts work rates when provided in the context of vocational rehabilitation.Despite the benefits shown by CR when offered alongside vocational training, its application continues to be limited internationally.What this paper addsThis study highlights the potential benefits of the HOPE+CR intervention in improving occupation, psychosocial, and cognitive functioning for people with SMI.Despite our small sample, this pilot provides the foundation for a larger study.Lastly, it provides preliminary evidence of potential ways to enhance vocational participation for job seekers with SMI living in Australia.In Australia, 90% of people suffering from a severe mental illness (SMI) report impaired functioning in daily life, with approximately 40% having difficulty looking after themselves, and 79% unemployed (Morgan et al., ). There is international consensus that current therapeutic interventions need to focus on these psychosocial sequelae (Insel, ). One intervention that has received substantial attention in terms of improving vocational outcomes is cognitive remediation (CR) (; McGurk, Schiano, Mueser, & Wolfe,
