Jobs Advocates program

Job Advocates can connect you to support, training and resources to help you find a job or training.

Job Advocates can help in numerous ways. From applying for jobs to connecting you with skills and training through work and learning centres, TAFE skills, job centres, apprenticeships and traineeships.

We are working with four highly skilled Job Advocates to work within our community. Helping people who are experiencing barriers to employment and who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. These include a Job Advocate that identifies as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. 

In partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence, our Jobs Advocates can help you connect with employment services. 

They can also help you find long term employment by: 

  • Helping you apply for jobs 
  • Connecting you with skills and training through work and learning centres, apprenticeships and traineeships
  • Linking you to a Jobs Victoria Mentor. A Jobs Victoria Mentor can give you hands-on practical support with job search tips, writing a resume, interview practicing, talking to you about how your interviews went, and checking in with you on your work search journey.
  • Job Advocates, also work with employers to find employees.  So that means they have local connections to Darebin employers and can match you up to a suitable employer.
