Today we are introducing Remote for Refugees, a program that makes it easy and cost effective for businesses to invest in refugee talent. Remote now offers FREE global employment for all refugees who reside in countries where we have an entity. If you are hiring refugee talent, talk to our team and learn more about our program here.
We have been working with governments and organizations that provide resources to refugees to come up with joint solutions that will directly help refugees rebuild their lives. This work is more urgent than ever, with millions of people being displaced from Afghanistan, Syria, and other war-torn countries. As a company that enables global employment opportunities, we feel it is our moral responsibility to help refugees get back on their feet through dignified employment.
Our mission is to open the vast potential of every person, business, and country, building a world where we can all thrive. Dignified employment is a force multiplier, enabling refugees to rebuild their lives and contribute to the communities where they live. Better employment opportunities also enrich communities by making room for more diverse perspectives.
We also want to highlight some of the amazing organizations that have been providing resources for refugees, including training, job placement, and advocacy:
1. For refugee remote-readiness training, we recommend:
2. For finding refugee talent and refugee-seeking employers, we recommend:
3. For company leaders who want to connect with other like-minded businesses, we recommend:
4. For refugees from Afghanistan in need of housing, check out Airbnb’s pledge.
Only together will we achieve our goal of extending the world of opportunity to everyone, regardless of where they are, where they’ve come from, or where they’re going.
This offer is available for all refugee talent who can show documentation of their refugee status and have the right to work or a work permit in their host country.
For as long as a person holds refugee status, this special discount will apply.
We plan to keep the program open for at least the next five years, with a view to extend the program. At multiple stages, we will evaluate the impact that this initiative is having and adjust where needed.
As long as the refugee has the legal right to work, we can employ them in any country where we have an entity. Check our Country Explorer for our live countries and projected launches. If you are a refugee and you are unsure if you have the right to work in your new country, we strongly recommend discussing your situation with your resettlement representative or local authority.
Yes. This offer is independent of our other offers.
The Remote for Refugee rate is for employers hiring refugee talent. If you are a refugee, we highly encourage applying for roles through refugee-specific job boards (listed above) or discussing your candidacy with various refugee recruitment agencies. If you’re already speaking with an employer, you can let them know about this offer or add a note in your CV.
To reiterate, you will need to have the right to work or work permit in your host country to be hired via Remote.
