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.

Jobs Victoria Employment Network
Jobs Victoria Employment Network (JVEN) is the Victorian Government’s major activity to help Victorians facing barriers to employment into jobs. Services are delivered by employment specialists who work closely with employers to identify job opportunities and prepare jobseekers for those roles.

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.

Transition to Work
Transition to Work is a service to support young people aged 15-21 on their journey to employment. The service provides intensive, pre-employment support to improve the work-readiness of young people and help them into work (including apprenticeships and traineeships) or education. IMVC is a provider of the Transition to Work contract for the Inner Melbourne and Western Melbourne regions.

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.
