Australian employers who want to hire refugees often do not know where to start. This guide is based on opportunities and challenges identified by employers and the types of support they found most useful to hire and integrate refugees into their organisations successfully.
Previous research found that successful hiring processes are often based on a collaborative approach. Employers derive support and inspiration from refugee employment experts, training providers, and industry peers, capitalising on available resources across sectors. A collaborative approach is, therefore, what this guide advocates.
While every employer is different, this guide is a short and practical, quick-start reference with general information for employers interested in hiring refugees.
