Sydney’s Jewish House has launched the Avodah (working again) Jobs Project – an initiative aimed at helping secure employment for people in our local community who have recently lost their job as a result of COVID-19, and other personal crises.

Hopeful job seekers will also receive access to JH in-house social workers and psychologists, professional career mentors, CV writing support, and interview skills when accessing this service – with thanks to the organisation’s partnerships with local community business networks.

Jewish House CEO, Rabbi Mendel Kastel said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unemployment and financial distress for a number of our local community members. Loss of income and financial security has a flow-on effect and can have devastating impacts on relationships, mental health and family housing situations. At Jewish House, we aim to do our part in supporting people in need with our “Avodah Jobs Project”. Partnering with local business owners, career coaches, and industry experts – our dedicated team will work with job seekers to support them, to secure employment in community businesses where possible, and get them back on their feet again.”

The Avodah Jobs Project will focus on reemployment for corporate, professional and service industry workers – and will also look at education, retraining, and apprenticeship opportunities. Jewish House aims to secure jobs for many community members with this service.

Local expert mentors are volunteering their time to this project and range from job providers, community business owners, corporate business professionals, recruitment specialists, employment service executives, and federal government job providers.

If you would like to access the Avodah Jobs Project, partner with JH as a career mentor, or offer direct employment opportunities– please contact [email protected] or call 02 9386 0770.
