Our annual refugee employment event is now online!

The event will be a chance to learn about the skills and experience refugees bring to the job market, and how recruitment processes can be revised to enable a diversity of applicants to be successful.

If you are a refugee looking for work, come to our workshop about the current and future job market.

If you are an employer with questions about how to gain from the skills and experiences refugee individuals bring, join our panel session.

Representatives from companies, refugees and charities will share their stories.
