FREE Training Workshops for Employers!

Refugees in Wales: How to foster diversity and access skills

Want to make the most of the workforce Wales has to offer? Attract specialist skills and experience from a range of backgrounds?

Refugees who come to Wales to seek safety from war and persecution are a diverse group of people with the right to work in the UK. Having worked in everything from finance to retail, business to academia and the trades, refugees bring myriad skill sets to Wales’ workforce. Despite this wide variety of skills and experience, refugee employment levels fall behind national averages.  

Attend a free employer workshop to:

·        learn how to make the most of the diverse skill pool of refugees living in Wales

·        find out how promoting diversity can enhance your business or organisation

·        receive clear, practical guidance on right-to-work docs & Home Office requirements

·        hear first hand from refugees working and seeking employment in Wales
