Employment and Job Seeking Experiences: A Case of South Sudanese Australians Residing in the ACT

Date Submitted : 21-Mar-2017

Themes : Employment Refugees South Sudanese

Dr. Nawal El-Gak and Mr. Gabriel Bul Yak have conducted a study on the South Sudanese Community experiences in accessing employment in the ACT.

Many Australian citizens of South Sudanese Australian origin, including those who have acquired tertiary qualifications and higher learning achievements have experienced difficulties in finding jobs, particularly in their field of expertise and as such have faced serious barriers to integration into the Australian mainstream professional workforce environment. To develop an in-depth understanding of the determinants of labour market in relation to South Sudanese Australian job seekers, especially graduates who obtained their tertiary qualifications in Australia, this project was undertaken in the ACT. The study has attempted to identify barriers to employment and suggest practical solutions.
