Providing employment for refugees and migrants
This year Suncorp partnered with Multicultural Development Australia (MDA) to establish an employment pathways program. The program provides job opportunities for refugees and migrants with humanitarian needs, as well as cultural training, mentoring and volunteering programs for our people.
Arnold Ayuya joined Suncorp through this partnership, and now works in our contact centre.
"There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about how far I have come, considering where I’ve come from. Not too long ago, the dream of having a career was so distant it was barely believable. To think I’d have a chance to have a career like this is a great blessing,” Arnold said.
"I’ve grown and will continue growing as part of this team. I’m grateful that I can help the team grow too. Being involved in the day-to-day activities and knowing that my contribution is valued is very fulfilling.”
Suncorp is incredibly proud of Arnold and others who have joined us through the MDA pathway.
