Long-time Brotherhood of St Laurence volunteer, Jenny Norvick understands the challenges faced by newly arrived refugees and migrants in finding employment. During her own career with the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, Jenny learned a lot about migrant and refugee settlement and the barriers that hinder those from different cultural backgrounds and with limited English from participating in working life.
A couple of weeks ago I received a lovely Letter of Invitation from the Brotherhood of St Laurence. It was an invite to attend a Morning Tea being given during Volunteers Week, as a mark of appreciation for the work that is done by Brotherhood volunteers.
After semi retiring, Andrew found himself missing the buzz and people activity in his office environment. 'I'd spent over 40 years in state government, specialising in human resources and people management. My life was a daily barrage of meetings, emails, phone calls, strategic thinking and managing complex projects,' Andrew said.
