Calling all refugees looking to work for the NSW government

As many of you and your organisations have direct engagement with new arrivals, we are now seeking your help to increase the number of applications registered on the ‘I work for NSW’ Refugee Employment Expression of Interest, as part of a broader NSW Government commitment to increase refugee employment in the public sector. Improving this pool of applications makes it easier it is for NSW Government agencies to identify roles and place candidates in them.



We are specifically asking for your help to encourage new arrivals that may be interested in working for the NSW Government to apply through the Refugee Employment EOI, in particular if they:

- arrived in Australia on or after 1 December 2015; and

- Hold a Class XB Visa.



We would like you to encourage as many potential candidates to register by Friday 5 May 2017, for agencies to have the opportunity to review applications in time for an employment event that DPC are currently organising.



If you have any questions about this, do not hesitate to contact me on 02 9228 3708.
