Migrant Services Regular - more than 6 months Anywhere

About this opportunity

Everyone in Australia is a migrant or a descendant of a migrant. Even our first peoples migrated here. And no matter how short or deep our roots are, most of us had to work hard to survive, find a job, put a roof over our heads, and feed our families. Times may have changed, but the challenges remain the same. Do you agree that even today newcomers are not easily accepted by existing communities, that ignorance, arrogance, and racism still exist, and that migrants have to work harder, be smarter, and be much more determined to get a job and prove themselves?

AMCCU (Australian Multi-Cultural Community United Ltd) is supporting the social and economic integration of migrants, fostering reconciliation, acceptance, and cooperation between the different races, ethnic and religious groups and bonding them into one Australian community. And we also celebrate the enriching multi-cultural diversity of our beautiful food, film, music, dance, fashion, art, literature, design, and crafts that makes our community so unique.

Being the new kid on the block ourselves, we intend to do all of this a bit differently from conventional charities. We don’t door-knock anymore but build cloud-based service platforms and online communication networks with passionate volunteer teams. We even have our own TV Production Team. However, no team can excel just by itself. It needs support.

That’s where you will come in.
