  • Contribute to an important social mission in Australia, improving education and employment opportunities
  • Join an organisation that will challenge you and invest in your professional development on an on-going basis

About the Organisation

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers struggle to find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale. Today, Generation is active in 12 countries, 100 cities and 275 sites, with diverse social, economic, and labour-market contexts.

Generation’s goal is to help their students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed people for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.

About the role

In this role, you will conduct fortnightly 1:1 sessions to check in with students and help them overcome any issues that they may be experiencing throughout the program. Additionally, you will provide informal, ad hoc support through quick chats, texts, or phone calls. You will be providing practical social support by counselling your clients to overcome difficult issues in their personal lives. You proactively evaluate daily interactions with students and creating long-lasting interventions to ensure their success.

You will support Generation’s Impact Monitoring and Evaluation by collecting data and feedback from students when advised, and ensure that there is an accurate record of student progress into the workforce.

You will need:

  • Experience working with disconnected communities and a deep understanding of the challenges people may face in seeking employment
  • Experience running workshops or sessions with groups of people
  • Familiarity with client management systems and excellent administrative skills
  • A professional demeanour, excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills and attention to detail
