The Refugee Talent Hub brings employers and refugee talents closer together with the goal of paid employment. This is in the interest of the refugee, employer and society. Jobs empower and give confidence and contributes to the faster integration of refugees. Refugees and employers often struggle to find one another, even though refugees could fill the gap in the labor market. Additionally, a diverse staff and management lead to successful organizations. Many refugees don’t have a social network yet in their host countries and many employers don’t know how to get in touch with refugees. A job opportunity starts with meeting the other; networking and discovering individual talents. The Refugee Talent Hub organizes job related meetings, the key to working and living together. The Refugee Talent Hub is an initiative for and by employers in the Netherlands and (close-knit cooperations between) public organizations. As we work based on the demand of employers we work nationwide. From Delfzijl to Rotterdam and from Amsterdam to Arnhem. VluchtelingenWerk Nederland is our partner of the earliest stage.
Activities & ambition
The various activities that the Refugee Talent Hub organises with employers are smallscaled and practically oriented. We organise meet & greets with employers to further develop the skills of employees with a refugee background, like IT or soft skill workshops. Additionally, we organise work experience-trajectories with employers, do a pre-selection of potential candidates and supply customised workshops. The aim of these activities is always to increase job opportunities for refugees. Our ambition is to organise relatively small events and still make a big impact on the individual lives of refugees, participating employers and with that the society as a whole.
We combine the knowledge, experiences and contacts of a large network of employers, social organisations and refugees. By combining for example the experiences of employers and employees others can use their acquired knowledge to their benefit. The hub-idea is also reflected in the way
