Employment Programs

Employment Programs

The IMVC pro-actively engages in the development of initiatives that address the challenges marginalised communities face in securing long-term employment.

Our initiatives include:

Career and Transition Programs

  • Our Career and Transition programs provide assistance in exploring career paths and opportunities in targeted industry areas.

Community Career Hub

  • Developed by IMVC –  the Community Career Hub is a new innovative learning and career website developed to assist anyone interested in exploring work and study options to further develop their career.

Social Enterprise – Avidity

  • Developed by IMVC, Avidity is Australia’s first social enterprise hair salon — all surpluses generated through the salon are reinvested back into training programs for disengaged youth and marginalised members of the inner Melbourne community. These programs aim to address the agendas of social inclusion, social equity and skills development.

Transition to Work

  • In 2016, as the lead organisation for two consortiums  – IMVC was awarded the Transition to Work contract (2016 – 2020) as a provider for Inner Melbourne and Western Melbourne.

IMVC Workplace Learning Program

  • IMVC’s Workplace Learning Program identifies and coordinates industry specific structured workplace learning opportunities for young people.
  • IMVC’s key role is to build meaningful connections with industry and employers. This enables industry to build its capacity to work with young people, and play a role in career pathway planning. The program also allows opportunities for young people to gain access to industries that interest them in a manner, and to an extent, that would otherwise not be possible.
