More information, simplified administrative procedures for hiring TCNs, improving the capacity of the public institutions to work with TCNs, and adapting to the new labor market conditions: these are the main conclusions of the discussions in the third, final training for employers held within the project UMN and Cities Together for Integration, on November 4, 2020.
The presentations focused on the needs of employers in the country, the main sectors which offer jobs to TCNs, the procedures for hiring mirgants, the difficulties that migrants themselves encounter in finding a job. Speakers included representatives of the BCCI, CITUB, a local organization of foreigners in Sofia, Open Sofia, as well as the NGO MultiCulti. Very interesting results from surveys conducted among employers in 2019 and 2020 were presented, which show the changes in the labor market and the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on employment in the country.
The main ideas and results of the trainings will be used in planning the subsequent project activities - information and advocacy campaigns aimed at increasing the role of local authorities and their cooperation with social partners in the process of integrating TCNs in the labor market in the country.
