NICE’s Employment Program focuses on removing barriers to employment for our refugee clients by building relationships with local employers who can offer job opportunities that will lead to self-sufficiency.

Employment Partners

We have high standards for our employment partners, and require employers to pay our clients a living wage of at least $15/hr, in addition to providing advancement opportunities, benefits, and other training to support New Americans in their careers. We are proud to partner with employers who are invested in the success of our clients.

NICE is especially proud of being a preferred employer for the refugee and immigrant community in Nashville. Numerous members of our staff are former clients of NICE and their passion for our mission and lived experiences contribute to creating strong relationships with the diverse communities we serve.

We are committed to ensuring our clients have meaningful employment with employers who are invested in their success. Please refer to the following list of ideal qualities our employer partners possess:

  • $15/hr at least
  • Transportation offered
  • Advancement opportunities
  • Benefits – healthcare/PTO/tuition reimbursement/etc.
  • Education opportunities for clients (ESL, trainings, etc.)
