I am a refugee looking for employment support

The Refugee Employment Programme (REP) is designed to support you in gaining suitable employment.

Once accepted onto the programme, you will be allocated a Case Manager to assess your needs and work with you to develop a tailored plan to improve your employability, support community integration or access further ESOL training.

While enrolled onto the programme you will be guided through a support package based around your individual needs. This may include CV writing support, interview practice, access to employment-specific language courses and work experience opportunities. We can also signpost you to mainstream services (such as a GP or Jobcentre), local community groups or mental-health services.

The Get Set UK team are here to help you on your journey.
