How Can Employers Successfully Recruit Refugees and Third-country Nationals?

These issues were the focus of the second training within the project UMN and Cities Together for Integration, held on 27 October 2020. The project is coordinated by the European Trade Union Confederation, co-funded by the Directorate-General for Migration and Internal Affairs. The lecturers in the training were Iva Partzaleva, UNHCR, who presented a comprehensive overview of the regulatory framework and the conditions for professional development of persons who have received international protection in Bulgaria. Stefany Kostova from Catro-Bulgaria spoke about the specifics in communicating with refugees in the hiring process and provided a number of practical tips for employers and organizations who would like to enrich their teams with new people, from new cultures and with diverse skills. Many questions related to the recruitment procedures, the organization of thematic courses in Bulgarian, etc., were discussed by the participants in the training.

The third and last training will take place on November 4, 2020, and it will be held online. For registration, please click here:
