Careers NSW

Logo for Careers NSW

Careers NSW aims to provide access to professional high-quality careers guidance to NSW residents.

A key supporting part of the program are volunteers currently working in their field who are willing to volunteer their time and expertise to talk to participants about their own career journey. The volunteers are called Industry Experts and they draw upon their first hand industry experience to inform people about working in their industry.

This volunteer role is virtual however applications are restricted to NSW residents.

Industry Experts undertake a dual role to: 1) Help raise awareness of the Careers NSW service and 2) Meet online with clients who have expressed an interest in your industry and who would like to understand what they can do to make themselves ready for a career in your industry.

These conversations would involve you sharing your personal insights on: 1) what it's like to work in your industry 2) the skills and capabilities you needed to succeed and how they align to your industry 3) what the opportunities are for progression in your industry 4) how/where to start in the industry 5) required and desirable qualifications (if known)

To get the most out of the volunteering experience an Industry Expert would typically have at least 5 years' experience in the industry they are representing and the ability to articulate previous experiences and career related information.

Benefits: By volunteering with Careers NSW you will be promoting your industry and the company you own or work in. You will have the opportunity to identify and attract new talent and cohorts that may be under-represented in your industry currently. Through your participation in this program you will have the opportunity to create and foster a fantastic network of contacts that are passionate about finding and developing people's potential.
