Just Give Me A Chance: Refugees' Experiences of Finding Employment in Australia

How can you get more refugees into jobs? 

This book explains how Job Services Australia providers can support employers to recruit and retain this underutilised yet highly productive workforce.

Former refugees describe their journey to Australia, their search for work, and the places and people that helped them find jobs and settle into Australia.

Managers and staff from Job Services Australia providers and employers in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide describe the relationships they formed to support the training, recruitment and retention of people from refugee backgrounds.

These stories show what is needed to make these partnerships work and why employers have made longer-term commitments to keep on recruiting refugees and new migrants.

This is a practical resource for staff working in employer liaison, vacancy canvassing and reverse marketing. You might also take copies to Job Expos, employer breakfasts, community events and other marketing activities.
