Multicultural Consulting Services (MCS) was established in 2013 to provide recruitment services. In 2016 after identifying the need of communities for more culturally appropriate and holistic services we expanded our scope of services to respond to these needs. As a result, we created a broad range of services which include consulting, employment, housing, training and education, health and family well-being and business and entrepreneurship in collaboration with service providers, small businesses, government departments and private sector to create further opportunities to empower communities.
We work with disadvantaged individuals, new migrants, unemployed and recently retrenched, disengaged youth, early school leavers, and graduates from diverse multicultural communities in and around Melbourne.

Full participation and access to opportunities for all.
