Jobs Victoria Advocates
About the JVA Program
The Jobs Victoria Advocates Program has been funded to the City LLEN by The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions to employ two Job Advocates.
The establishment of Jobs Victoria Advocates (Advocates) recognises that many people are not aware of the different supports available to them or do not know where to go for the help and advice they need to get back into work. Advocates will therefore perform a crucial navigation role within the wider employment services ‘ecosystem’.
Advocates will be the local face of employment services in Victoria, helping to direct jobseekers to the types of support that they need. Advocates will support anyone in the community looking for a pathway to employment or who needs employment-related supports.
