Employers' guide to refugees

The Refugee Council in partnership with the Equality and Human Rights Commission have produced a short guide for employers on understanding refugee documentation.  The guide shows the standard identity documents a refugee will possess and will use to evidence their permission to work.  

Employing Refugees - Guide to identity documents (Dec 2014)



Here's what our client wrote to us about his experience of our service:

What an absolute delight to read your mail. The CV you wrote in my behalf made me realize that I have skills and qualities that I never thought I had. I thought I was just one ordinary, unskilled and unqualified refugee who is about to start life from scratch. 

Thank you so much for seeing something positive in me. It is hard to find people who would value me as a normal person let alone as a skilled person when living as an "immigrant". I hope, with your help, will find myself in a position to be self supportive and contribute something to this country that gave me a second chance in life"
