A new platform called Job Aid Ukraine has been set up and is dedicated to partnering Ukrainian refugees with employers, in the hope of achieving some relief and financial security to those in need. There is the option to find jobs, but also to post a job for companies wanting to help. They facilitate the initial contact and exchange between employer and jobseeker, all completely free of charge. Roles are for varying sectors and locations, with options for full-time, part-time, freelance and apprenticeships.
Polish National Association SAR has collaborated with the Ukrainian National Association to create – AdAid.eu – a job platform aimed at connecting Ukrainian marketing and communications specialists with European employers. And now, with support from the Advertising Association, any immediate roles from the UK are being advertised as remote whilst the UK government regulate new rules. LBB Online have put together some guidance for UK businesses wanting to participate, and the UK Government have put together a web page for employers who want to advertise a role for Ukrainian refugees.
Marketing Week has also detailed how we can support Ukrainian refugees, whilst also sharing companies who have begun to help Ukrainians find work – ‘Refugee status means aspiring marketers don’t have to wait three years before they are eligible for funding, as with standard immigration rules, enabling them to commence a job in marketing and upskill within weeks of coming to the UK.’
The charitable organisation ‘Talent Beyond Boundaries’ connects refugees with international employment opportunities – allowing them to work in a country with access to their full rights. They are urging Ukrainian professionals to register on their talent catalogue for a chance to receive international employment or skilled visa opportunities. Alongside this, they have the option to help support employers looking to hire a displaced worker.
SafetyWing is a company built on offering remote roles to stop the barrier between equal opportunities. They have compiled a list of employers who are currently prioritising applications for Ukrainian citizens affected by the war. They are updating the list weekly in a bid to help as many Ukrainians as possible. There is also the opportunity to put forward your own company, so if you’re looking to help support the ongoing crisis and are willing to hire remote workers, you can submit this form.
