Refugees face huge challenges in getting a job. Some fled war torn countries before they completed their education. Others are highly skilled professionals who are struggling to have their qualifications recognised in the UK. They all have so much to contribute but need a helping hand to understand the systems and working culture in the UK and become financially independent.
Our team of expert employment advisers understand the barriers to working in the UK. We work closely with refugees to develop an achievable plan to get back to work. We offer employment-preparation workshops, help with CVs and interview techniques. We provide work experience opportunities and ultimately support people for as long as they need us to find a job that’s right for them.
