Multicultural Employment Services is run state-wide across Tasmania and consists of two programs, The Safe Haven Hub and Career Pathways Pilot.
The Safe Haven Hub
The Safe Haven Hub develops and supports pathways to education, training and employment for individuals from refugee background and other recently arrived migrants.
Our workers are based in Hobart and Launceston and are able to provide a range of support to those who are experiencing barriers to employment, education or training. Support will be provided either one-on-one, or in the context of group sessions following an initial intake and assessment of need.
Pathways to employment may include practical assistance for job search; invitation to information sessions and workshops; referral to appropriate support services, courses or training; assistance in pathway planning and decision making; support to obtain a volunteer or work placement; and support with qualification recognition. The SHH also provides support to employers to assist with the process of placements and employment opportunities for our cohort of clients.
The Safe Haven Hub also provides transitional support services to SHEV and TPV holders who are new to the state. This may include providing information and referrals to mainstream services and providing support and information about settling into life in Tasmania.
For more information on SHEV and TPVs please see the following links
Services are available to those who have been in Australia for less than five years and who are experiencing barriers to employment or education.
Eligible visas include Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV), Temporary Protection Visa (TPV), Bridging Visa, Refugee and Humanitarian Visas, and some other recently arrived migrants.
Registrations are held on Mondays between 10am – 3pm. Just drop in, no appointment required. Or to arrange another time, please call for an appointment on 6278 1660.

The SHH is funded through the State Government via the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC)
Career Pathways Pilot
The Career Pathways Pilot assists humanitarian entrants who are unemployed or underemployed to pursue employment opportunities which match their skills, qualifications, and work experience. CPP works with people who have arrived in Australia under the Humanitarian Program in the past five years and who speak English at a work ready level.
Career pathway advice and financial support is targeted to achieve employment outcomes that match the particular trade skills or qualifications that people have, rather than providing generic employment support.
Humanitarian entrants within the first 5 years of arrival in Australia
