Refugees and Asylum seekers.


An equal chance to access a regular job, support and inclusion.

SOLUTION: is a platform that connects refugees with companies and Non-Profits that would like to employ them. Refugees can register for free, create an individual profile and apply for internships listed on the website by potential employers.
They can easily create a resume and get feedback, and get in direct contact with possible employers. They also provide coaching for job interviews, information and videos about the Austrian job market, application procedures, cultural differences in the work place etc. They can also access information on relevant educational offers.

why it is

Recognised refugees and people granted subsidiary protection have free access to the Austrian job market and do not face any restrictions. For asylum seekers (refugees in a pending asylum procedure), they offer volunteering as an option as long as the following conditions are met; they can only work for a max. of 3 months per year and no compensation of any kind, this is only for educational purposes.

More than 275 employers have joined the platform and more than 4.500 candidates.
