The $500 million Working for Victoria initiative helps Victorians, including international students, who have lost their jobs as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19), find paid work that supports the community.
The Victorian Government is collaborating with La Trobe University to promote the Working for Victoria Fund which is designed to connect workers with new opportunities that will help our community and contribute to Victoria’s ability to respond to the pandemic.
There will be a range of roles available across the state, including positions that comply with the work hour requirements for student visa holders. This work will provide vital contributions to our state’s response to the pandemic and afford Victorians work security when it’s needed most. They are also connecting people to jobs in industries where demand for workers remains high.
Working for Victoria is working with the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to identify these jobs and have partnered with the Sidekicker platform to allow students to quickly find and apply for jobs.
La Trobe University is running two information sessions this Thursday 4 June and Friday 5 June at 12:30pm via Zoom to assist students in putting their best foot forward when registering and applying for these roles.
These can contribute towards Practical Experience within your Career Ready Advantage Award.
Register here to attend the information session at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday 4 June.
