At AimBig, our support focuses on breaking down barriers, which those from a different cultural background often includes language and communication.

Our job coaches are connected to these communities, and often come from these backgrounds themselves and speak a second language.

When signing up for services, participants gain access to a range of programs and community organisations to prepare them for employment, aiming to create a seamless process on the job seeker journey. This can include English classes, connecting participants to resource centres, internal programs and more. We have also launched Ask Jeeves – a SMS function which allows participants to communicate with us in their first language so they can access services.

We work with a range of businesses and organisations to build meaningful connections and look for opportunities that meet our participants. We have placed a number of our participants with employers that speak their first language to break down communication barriers to provide the best chance for success.
