This session has been designed for Heads of HR/HR Leads within councils who would like to understand more about recruiting and employing refugees.

Hosted by Ferzana Kusair, Regional High Skills Refugee Employment & Employer Liaison Advisor at EELGA, this myth-busting session will talk you through:

  • What the employment processes are for refugees.
  • Why the perceived barriers are easier to overcome than you may initially think.
  • Who to connect with to access this talent pool which could help to address recruitment and retention issues.

Case study – you will hear the first-hand experience of a refugee who has built a successful career in the UK and is now keen to help others do the same.

Any questions you may have on this topic will be very much welcomed.

Who should attend:
Heads of HR/HR leads within councils.  This is only open to our member authorities in the the East of England region.

If you have any queries please contact Alison Thompson, East of England LGA, email: es@eelga.gov.uk
