Information for employers

Friendly Nation Initiative

The Friendly Nation Initiative is a strategy of the Migration Council of Australia that mobilises Australian businesses to provide employment, mentoring, internship, and work experience opportunities to refugees.  This guide was a collaboration between the Tent Partnership for Refugees and the Friendly Nation Initiative.

The Australian Employers’ Guide to Hiring Refugees is a practical toolkit intended to help employers who are interested in hiring refugees but don’t know where to start. To ensure that it would be both actionable and pragmatic, employers who have already welcomed refugees into their workforce made a significant contribution to its development. The guide contains essential information about the logistics and practicality of hiring refugees in Australia and guidance on how to design and implement refugee employment programs to be maximally successful for employers and refugees alike.
