Work Towards Employment Hub
FREE Job support for migrants, refugees and international students
What is the program?
Work Towards is a free government funded program aimed at increasing employment opportunities for underemployed and unemployed refugees, migrants and international students. The Work Towards Employment Hub helps to work on your confidence and achieve your goals. It's a flexible program and we work with you one on one to provide tailored support based on your unique needs.
Over the last few months our Work Towards team have been helping people from multicultural backgrounds get into the jobs they want.
Laura, a Work Towards client, sent through her experience working with the team.
"I appreciate your assistance with the program Work Towards.
All the tips and pieces of advice on the job search were key for me to get the job I wanted. Many thanks for helping me to build up my confidence and believe in myself. You are doing a great job helping CALD communities
I signed up the contract for a permanent full time job as a Support Coordinator at Stride for better mental health".
We have been busy hosting very successful workshops for clients and community on areas of Taxation, English and Business.
