In partnership with Jobs Victoria, LGPro’s Local Pathways project explores the different roads to meaningful employment in local government for vulnerable cohorts of job seekers.

Local Pathways, along with our delivery partners and participating councils, aim to support job seekers through supported pathways to employment, while facilitating a strong awareness of employment rights to a culturally safe and inclusive workplace.

The program also offers councils support in expanding and engaging with Victoria’s increasingly diverse local employment market, so they can move closer to implementing Diversity and Inclusion policies that ensure their workforces reflect their local communities.

“This program is a win-win. Local Governments have the opportunity to fill genuine skills shortages and it gives workers the dignity and work safety that a council can provide.”
