Skills for Employment

IKEA starts in cooperation with The Human Rights League a new project supporting refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection: Skills for Employment.

The initiative aims to help refugees gain new skills and work experience so that they have a better chance of finding a job, whether it is at IKEA stores and units or at other companies. This gives them better opportunities to integrate into their new host communities. 
 
Application deadline is the 15th February 2021.
