CareerSeekers supports mid-career professionals looking to re-establish their careers in Australia, and university students.
Many skilled humanitarian entrants have poor employment prospects due to a lack of local work experience, despite having tertiary level qualifications from their home countries or being high performing students.
The CareerSeekers program aims to provide internships that help humanitarian arrivals gain locally relevant, professional work experience.
The program was developed from learnings and experience gained from the renowned CareerTrackers program which SVA was involved in supporting since 2010.
Goal of SVA partnership
With support from J.P. Morgan, SVA assisted CareerSeekers in developing the foundations to scale beyond the pilot stage.
