We work with women to build skills and confidence to support their financial independence.
“[It’s been] so helpful – actually before this project, I don’t know how to apply for jobs, no confidence – now I know, you helped me a lot. These things were new to me and now I know…it’s been really good for me” (Given the Chance pilot project participant).
inSpire runs a series of projects supporting women to build their skills and confidence in seeking work. This is such an important area for women to connect with the broader community, build their confidence and truly become independent.
There is no escaping the fact that COVID-19 has, and will continue to have, a devastating effect on many of the women we work with for years to come. We know that work is scarcer, and jobs are more competitive than ever, and the women we work with are often the most affected.
We support women to understand the Australian employment landscape, building their skills and capacity in successful job searches, and building their confidence in the employment environment.. Many participants face language barriers, are on temporary visas, or don’t have Australian work experience or references. They may not lack skills or experience, but showcasing them is not always easy. We work alongside our incredible partners to support women to navigate the jobs market, to understand their own skills and goals and to work towards them. We provide individual and group coaching, skills building, connections with recruiters, and training and employment opportunities to boost their chances of success.
