About this opportunity

Mentoring is a collaborative engagement based on agreed expectations and goals. The mentoring relationship gives people the opportunity to share their professional and personal skills and experiences in a mutually supportive environment. The City East Mentor Program aims to support skilled work-ready migrants who are seeking employment in their area of expertise. Program participants will be matched with volunteer mentors from the community who will use their knowledge and experience of the Australian workplace to support and empower mentees in their search for work. Mentors will focus on the individual needs of their mentee to assist them in making informed decisions and achieving their employment goals. The aim is for this to be a positive learning experience which is mutually beneficial to both the mentor and mentee.
