Migrant employment initiatives
This page provides information about the City's commitment to supporting migrant employment through the Kaleidoscope Initiative project.
Moving to a new country can be both exciting and challenging, especially when it comes to finding employment.
The Kaleidoscope Initiative project assists prospective employees and employers by offering information, resources and business support along with networking and business connection opportunities. This project has been developed in partnership with Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) and funded by Office of Multicultural Interests, Government of Western Australia through its ‘Local Projects, Local Jobs’ Program.
Kaleidoscope, in partnership with community and professional organisations, runs a variety of workshops and networking events designed to help skilled newcomer professionals become job-ready.
Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program
Building on the thriving partnerships developed under its Kaleidoscope Initiative Network, Kaleidoscope has now launched its Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program to help highly-skilled newcomer professionals further improve their employment potential by connecting them with mentors from their field/profession/industry. This program has been developed in partnership with the City of Canning & Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre (MMRC) and funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
