VluchtelingenWerk Nederland

"A lot of existing talent is not found and, therefore, not utilised, despite an abundance of vacancies. We find it incredibly important for refugees to maintain control and autonomy over their lives if they are able to do so. They need a way to find work without guidance or coaches. RefugeeWork allows refugees to show who they are and what they can do. Support is available if they need it."

Start Foundation

"Start Foundation is committed to helping people who may struggle to find work. Success in the labour market starts with the right match. We were not aware of any national platform on which asylum permit holders can present and offer themselves. This is that platform. Start Foundation, in cooperation with VluchtelingenWerk Nederland, is making it happen."

RefugeeWork has just been launched. This is the first version of the platform and we are working hard to constantly improve it. Sign up now and help us build a network of enthusiastic jobseekers and employers together!
