Multicultural Safety Ambassadors

The Multicultural Safety Ambassadors Program is run by the Migrant Workers Centre to train and support migrant leaders in Victoria to deliver education sessions on workplace health and safety to their communities.

Migrant workers face many barriers to ensuring they are safe at work, such as limited access to adequate in-language resources, misconceptions about their workplace rights, fear of repercussions for taking action, and a lack of information about services available to them.

The program will train active and trusted members of Victorian migrant communities to become Multicultural Safety Ambassadors, who will be supported to deliver face-to-face information sessions to their peers on good workplace health and safety practices.

The Migrant Workers Centre will deliver a 7-day training program for Ambassadors to learn about OH&S, Workers’ Compensation, how to deliver community-based training, and to build power in their communities

Applications for 2022 are not yet open. Please check back later in the year.

This program is for permanent and temporary migrants who are active in their community. If you help organise events or bring people to them, or help members of your community to access information and services, you are who we are looking for! 

Yes, Multicultural Safety Ambassadors are casual workers. As a guide, remuneration is $43.05 per hour (inclusive of casual loading) plus 12% superannuation.

Successful applicants will attend a paid 7-day training program. Training will take between 9am and 5pm and all successful applicants are required to attend.

After training, engagement will be irregular and not expected to exceed 7 hours in any given month. Ambassadors will plan, organise, and deliver community information sessions, each of which will take approximately one full day of work spread over multiple days. 

We will work with each Ambassador to put together an ongoing engagement plan that suits their personal availability.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend individual interviews through video conferencing.

Applicants may be asked to provide contact details of personal references in the community.

Depending on restrictions relating to COVID-19, training will be held online or at the Victorian Trades Hall Council in Carlton, Melbourne.
