Our Jobs Victoria Advocates will help job seekers in our community connect with employment and training services by providing practical, personalised support.

Our Jobs Victoria Advocates have extensive knowledge of local, state and national employment and training services. They also understand that alternative support may be required for people with special circumstances.

You will find our Jobs Victoria Advocates throughout the Greater Geelong community in places such as local libraries, community centres, neighbourhood houses and events to name a few. Alternatively, they can be reached online and by phone.

Our Jobs Victoria Advocates can help you navigate the employment and training services by:

  • referring you to a local Jobs Victoria Partner who can help you update your resume, prepare for job interviews, and connect you with local employers.
  • Connect you to local skills and training opportunities through Work and Learning Centres, TAFE Skills and Jobs Centres, and apprenticeship programs.
  • Inform you where there are job vacancies in your local area using the Jobs Victoria online hub.
