We are proud to partner with Jobs Victoria to deliver the Jobs Victoria Mentor service.

Operating in and supporting the City of Greater Dandenong (located in the Southern Metropolitan region).

Jobs Victoria supports Victorian jobseekers and employers in their local communities through face-to-face, online and phone-based services.

Our Jobs Victoria Mentors at Skillinvest help people to become work-ready, find a job that suits them and support them in their role for the first six months. We help people understand their career options and give them the tools and confidence they need to pursue them.

Who is eligible for Mentor services?

Skillinvest’s Jobs Victoria Mentors provide targeted support to people who face significant challenges finding employment, including:

  • Australian citizens, permanent residents, or temporary residents seeking asylum
  • residents of Victoria who reside in Greater Dandenong (Southern Metropolitan region)
  • people who are long-term unemployed (12 months or more), or
  • people who are at significant risk of long-term unemployment.


A Jobs Victoria Mentor will assess your eligibility for support based on your individual circumstances.

You may be considered at significant risk of long-term unemployment if you experience some of the following barriers:

  • not completing secondary education (either in Australia or overseas)
  • no post-school qualifications
  • a lack of Australian work experience
  • low English language proficiency
  • low literacy (reading/writing)
  • lack of digital literacy
  • lack of knowledge of job search techniques/processes
  • limited social and professional networks that can help with job search activities
  • personal circumstances that limit employment options or make it challenging to search for job and/or keep a job (e.g experience of family violence, unstable housing/homelessness, a significant disability, mental health issues, drug and alcohol dependance, criminal record)
  • low confidence and low self-esteem
  • other barrieres considered on a case-by-case basis by Jobs Victoria.

If you have been looking for work for a while, or you’re facing challenges that are making it harder to find a job, a Jobs Victoria Mentor can help.

A Mentor gives you support that meets your needs. Every person has their own story and our Mentors work with you to help you achieve your goals.

We can help you to increase your work readiness skills including:

  • resume and cover letter writing
