Worker-Initiated Employment Portability Review – Pacific Labour Facility

Palladium’s Pacific Labour Facility (PLF) works with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to support the administration of the Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme and facilitate opportunities for Australian employers to connect with workers from the Pacific and Timor-Leste. The PLF has been established as a trusted intermediary in supporting Australia-Pacific circular labour mobility.

The PLF is seeking a consultancy firm or individual consultant to undertake a study to better understand how worker-led portability is managed in other migrant receiving countries globally. The study will identify and analyse cross-border temporary labour mobility programs in which workers are able to initiate changes of employer/employment within the duration of their seasonal or other temporary work visa. The study will be largely desk-based with the possibility of some qualitative primary data collection.

This RFQ is open to individuals and organisations.
