Description:

We offer a holistic service designed to make sure that refugees can find meaningful employment that is commensurate with their skills, experience and qualifications.
By doing so we help their successful settlement in, and integration with, local communities.
In 2013, the UK was home to 120,000 refugees and there are 20,000 new applications every year for refugee status.
Although these refugees have higher levels of education, skills and qualifications than the UK average, an eagerness to work and are mostly of working age, unemployment levels in refugee communities remain above 50%, compared to 6% for the national average.
This is due to a number of refugee-specific barriers that prevent them from finding employment.
