Employment Solutions Team Host an Afternoon of Networking

On Friday 22 November, Sonder held a networking event to celebrate both the achievements of Sonder’s Employment Solutions program and the collaboration of key stakeholders whose efforts contributed to the program’s great success over the past year.

Sonder’s Employment Solutions program is designed to support migrants and refugees experiencing barriers to employment. To date, the program has successfully facilitated 80 work placements.

The program is based on a successful evidence-based model known as Individual Placement Support (IPS) which has been implemented in  Australia and internationally with outstanding results.

IPS employment services are typically integrated within community mental health teams supporting people with mental health issues to find suitable employment based on their goals and aspirations.

To ensure clients receive truly individualised supports the traditional IPS model recommends a maximum of 20 clients per full-time  employment specialist. This enables the employment specialist to provide all
phases of vocational support including intake, engagement, assessment, job placement, job coaching and follow-along support (including providing support to employers).
