Toowoomba Chamber delivers migrant employment

With employment being the goal for many refugees and migrants, Toowoomba Chamber’s Business Connect Program helps to break down the barriers as it seeks out and encourages employment opportunities for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
A program only possible due to the ongoing support of the Queensland Government and local businesses.
Thanks to the Toowoomba Chamber’s Business Connect Program, Heritage Bank has recently employed, Reem Doumet, as a Member Service Officer, after arriving in Australia only eight months ago from Syria where she worked as a lawyer.

Heritage Bank Branch Manager at The Range, Elyse Sheppard, said, “Reem is taking it all in her stride and has shown great confidence in her role.
“Reem has expressed to us that the best thing about her job is being able to help people and give advice and inspiring others in her community by showing them what’s possible with hard work and the right attitude.”
Heritage Bank Area Branch Manager, Sharma Haller said, “We are so pleased to have Reem on board whose passion is infectious, and her warmth uplifting”.
“Heritage Bank has been proactive in migrant employment with the introduction of our migrant banking program. A core component of the success of this program has been providing mentorship and support to new employees,” expressed Sharma.
Reem said, “I credit my employment at Heritage Bank to the assistance given by Toowoomba Chamber’s Business Connect Program.”

“The program opened many doors for me, through new connections and introductions at their welcoming networking events. The transition into the workplace has been made seamless thanks to the inclusiveness of Heritage Bank staff and their migrant support initiatives.”

Business Connect Program Manager, Georgie Carswell, said “Reem’s employment is
testament to the power of collaboration between the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce, the Heritage Bank and the Queensland Government”.
