Event Reports: 2020-2021

While 2020 gave us all a sense of uncertainty, it also gave us the chance to use technology to our advantage. We at Migrant Careers made use of this opportunity by conducting various webinars online.

Later in the year, we also conducted a series of physical boot camps for job seekers and entrepreneurs trying to take their professional journey to the next level.

The Employment Mediation Service has been working hard to deal with the number of additional cases following the COVID-19 lockdown. Depending on the type of application, people who apply for mediation can now expect to wait on average between 12 and 20 working days to access the service. Employers and employees also now have the option of attending mediation in-person, online or via telephone. Online mediation is an excellent option for parties from different locations and often means quicker access to the service.
