Paid internships up for grabs

Youth in Brimbank from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds interested in starting their careers are encouraged to apply for a new paid internship program.

Roles will be located in the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry [VCCI] affiliated companies in a wide range of industries with a demand for personnel commensurate with a participant’s skills and qualifications.

In addition to the internships, more than 60 young people will receive pre-employment training delivered through an $800,000 Labor Government investment and a partnership between Jobs Victoria, the VCCI and Youth Activating Youth [YAY].

YAY provides participants with support for up to 12 weeks after the internship to strengthen their success and potential to transition to a continuous job.

Employers also receive training and advice to ensure they are ready to support interns through the program.

Employment Minister Jaala Pulford said the program will also help young people develop a network of contacts.

“These internships are a foot in the door to help young people launch their careers and show potential employers what they have to offer,” she said.
