Society of South Sudanese Professionals Australia

Systems and solutions for supporting professionalism


Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey
In the past few years, the South Sudanese population has risen with estimates of more than 33,000 living in Australia. Hence become one of the fastest-growing ethnic and migrant community, with the high national unemployment rates. Despite, many South Sudanese attaining university and college qualifications in Australia, it is unfortunate that most of these graduates remain as isolated jobs seekers due to lack of workforce experiences, networking, skills and professional development among many other factors.
