A small success during the Corona pandemic for United Way the Netherlands

Six Refugee bus drivers considered by our new partner:

We are pleased to announce that refugees continue to be considered for jobs under United Way the Netherlands (UW-NL) partnership platform involving Edu4U, Refugee Talent Hub, Tent and Networkpro.

Bringing these powerful forces together in our Corona emergency response, is yielding success.

#Tent introduced UW-NL to #Omzien, a job placement agency searching for bus drivers in the Deventer area. Working with #Edu4u, which has a database extending to more than 70.000 refugees in the Netherlands, we reached out to the refugee community giving them hope and prospects for training, jobs and integration notwithstanding a 50% increase in the unemployment rates caused by the Corona pandemic.

This is the first of more than 20 vacancies UW-NL and its partners hope to fill in the next six months thanks to its generous partners
