Employer Information

Our partnerships

The Refugee Talent Hub is an employer's initiative for employers. We work with paid partnerships. Depending on the type and number of joint activities, our partners donate € 10,000, € 25,000 or € 50,000 per year. The Refugee Talent Hub is financially fully supported by our partners. In some cases we make separate agreements with small companies for whom the partner contribution is an obstacle.

Here the employers who are currently part of the Refugee Talent Hub:

Our method

The Refugee Talent Hub organizes with affiliated partners practical and targeted activities that lead refugees to paid work. During our meetings, the meeting is central, a great way to get to know candidates personally and to look beyond CVs. All activities are tailor-made and in line with the specific wishes of the partneremployer.

Our activities include:

  • Workshop During our workshops together with refugees you workk on their professional skills. For example, you can provide a LinkedIn training, interview seminar or course about building websites. This is an accessible way to get acquainted with job-seeking refugees.

  • Meet-and-greet This acitivity is centered around the personal meeting with a group of job-seeking refugees and suitable for recruitment. We meet in a small group (with five people or more) or organize a large event (with about a hundred people). Our meet-and-greets are informal, practical and are centered around doing something together. We work on a business case with financial service providers, we dive into the kitchen at restaurants and we pick up drills and other tools with technical companies.

  • Training In a crashcourse of various weeks or months, you as an employer teach a group of refugees skills such as programming or dealing with control programs. These "classes" help participating employers to recruit interesting candidates.

  • Internal trainingprogram During this program the employer trains job-seeking refugees throught its own in-house course. After completing this training successfullythe candidate are ready to start working immediately at your company.

  • Mentor program During this program employees are matched with with a refugee-mentee. During this period you work together towards a clear, work-related goal and you exchange knowledge, network and experiences.

Our current activities can be found here.

The Refugee Talent Hub also supports employers in strengthening internal support for diversity in the workplace in general and working with refugees in particular.

Practical guide for employers

Many employers struggle with practical questions about working with refugees. What about the laws and regulations? Where do you start when you want to hire someone? And what guidance is actually needed?

Answers to these and other questions can be found in our practical guide for employers (in Dutch), produced by the Refugee Talent Hub and our civil society partner Tent Partnership for Refugees.

You can also consult this roadmap (in Dutch) from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment about regulations or check out our fact sheet about working with employees with a refugee background.
