Employment & volunteer placements needed

Could you help a refugee to improve their job prospects or give an unaccompanied asylum seeking young person a valuable volunteering opportunity?

We are keen to find paid or unpaid work placements, long or short-term, for our clients to give them valuable experience of a workplace to help them start their careers and/or complement their studies.

We will happily consider ANY volunteering opportunity but are especially interested in work placements  (shadowing opportunities) which will allow for practical experience with trades: plumbers, electricians, plasterers, carpenters or anything in the building trade (scaffolders, bricklayers, roofers).

Customer facing roles in admin, food establishments or in childcare settings would also be VERY useful.

We know these are difficult times for everyone but the people we support can be further disadvantaged in the current economic climate, so any support or assistance you can offer would really be welcomed and very greatly appreciated.

Even a couple of days’ shadowing could be really useful.  If you or your business can help, please contact Pippa: pbaker@suffolkrefugee.org.uk or Sarah: sowens@suffolkrefugee.org.uk
