Refugee Talent Hub

Refugee Talent Hub

Refugee Talent Hub, supported by its tech arm HireMe, serves as a one-stop shop employment support program. We support newly settled refugees in overcoming hiring barriers and securing meaningful employment. We equally support employers so they can easily and efficiently source and recruit refugee talent.

Challenges

&

 Solutions

EMPLOYMENT BARRIERS

Refugees face numerous employment barriers and are expected to overcome barriers themselves, with insufficient support.

HANDS-ON SUPPORT

Allow refugees to be easily identified by employers, and provide them with hands-on support throughout the hiring process.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Employers largely do not include refugees as part of diversity and inclusion practices, leaving them at the bottom of the hiring ladder.

AWARENESS

Engage employers on the value of refugee talent to incorporate refugees into diversity and inclusion efforts.

RECRUITMENT

Employers do not have the tools to easily identify, source, and recruit refugee talent.

How Refugee Talent Hub is different

Employers are heavily engaged in addressing the economic inclusion of refugees

We work with both employers and refugees to remove employment barriers within their own control

 

We provide employers with online access to a talent pool of job-ready skilled refugees, making it easy for them to source talent and meet their diversity and inclusion mandates.

 

While some use automated solutions to match employers and job-seekers, and others use manual interventions, we combine both to increase the speed and effectiveness of talent recruitment while reducing the effort required from refugees

We provide comprehensive support to refugees to help them succeed in the hiring process. Once employers contact them, we support them with job-specific resume writing, interview coaching and employer follow-up to increase their employabilitiy

HireMe
