Why is this important?

The hardest thing about finding a job in a new country is lacking local experience. The African Australian Inclusion Program (AAIP) gives participants meaningful work experience in Australia, to help them get over that hurdle. Participants gain exposure to Australian workplace culture, build all-important networks, update their CV with local experience and obtain a reference at the end of their placement to help them with job hunting.

What do we do?

We run an African Australian Inclusion Program twice a year, in partnership with Jesuit Social Services, to give six months of paid corporate experience to skilled African Australians.

Participants receive:

  • an entry-level salary
  • cultural training before they commence
  • a mentor from their business unit who clearly explains the tasks and duties
  • a coach who can help with career goals.

Celebrating an important milestone

We've recently celebrated an important milestone, with more than 200 African Australians participating in our inclusion program. Around 80% of people in the program go on to find work in their chosen field, with us or at other companies.
