Jobs Victoria Advocates

Jobs Victoria Advocates can help you find work by connecting you to local support and training.

What are Jobs Victoria Advocates?

Jobs Victoria Advocates support people who are looking for work by connecting them to information, advice, and the right services.
There are more than 100 Jobs Victoria Advocates working in local communities across Victoria.

Where are Jobs Victoria Advocates?

Jobs Victoria Advocates are working in communities across the state in regional and metropolitan Melbourne.
They meet with people in community spaces such as libraries, sports clubs and shopping centres to make sure everyone knows about resources available to help them find a job.

How can a Jobs Victoria Advocate help you?

If you’re looking for work, a Jobs Victoria Advocate can help get you started.

  • We can connect you with skills and training through Work and Learning Centres, TAFE Skills and Jobs Centres, and apprenticeships.
  • We can help you apply for jobs through the Jobs Victoria Hub.
  • If you need more support, we can link you to a Jobs Victoria Partner who can provide hands-on support such as CV and interview skills, and then help you find a job.
