Our Indigenous employment programs are a pathway to real jobs.
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?
Run in partnership with Jesuit Social Services (JSS), the African Australian Inclusion Program (AAIP) runs twice a year to provide six months of paid corporate experience to skilled African Australians.
- an entry-level salary
- cultural training before they commence
- a mentor from their business unit who will support them in their day to day tasks and duties
- a coach from outside their team who can help with career goals; and
- a buddy who is an AAIP alumni to support with their transition into the program and NAB.
Celebrating an important milestone
We've recently celebrated an important milestone, with more than 300 African Australians participating in our inclusion program. Around 80% of people in the program go on to find ongoing employement either with NAB or at other companies.
