Get help with work and training opportunities

Finding a job can help you earn an income, meet new people, learn new skills, and build your confidence. Our employment team, made up of staff and volunteers, can help you with resume writing, looking for jobs and internships, submitting applications and interview coaching. The team can also help you look for free and affordable training opportunities.

Please note, for the ASC to help you with finding a job, you must have the right to work in Australia on your visa.

By connecting with partner employers, people at the Asylum Seekers Centre have found jobs working in childcare, health, manufacturing, disability services, hospitality and construction.

The friendly ASC Employment Service can provide the support you need to find a job.

When I came to Australia the Asylum Seekers Centre helped me with advice about work and to prepare to find a job. With the help of my job advisor I was able to get a good job which was a big help in starting life in Australia. I would like to thank the centre for helping me through this time.
