Helping vulnerable migrants, people seeking asylum and those with refugee status...
Liverpool in Work has secured a contract with Our Liverpool to deliver information advice and guidance to recently granted refugees (recently granted can be as much as 3 or 4 years).
This project has two dedicated guidance officers who will work with refugees to assist them with finding work, training or voluntary work.
All participants are registered with LIW and an action plan is developed identifying key actions that need to be undertaken in order to work towards the main goal which could be anything from improving their English language by joining an ESOL course or identifying appropriate training providers or employers who can offer opportunities to our participants. The two guidance officers are based at Wavertree One Stop shop on Picton Road but also do outreach throughout the city in order to be more accessible.
We can create or update C.Vs, assist with completing job application forms, use NARIC to transfer qualifications and can source specific training providers for participants.
Our team can be contacted on the following telephone numbers. Carlos is on 0151 233 5766 and Richard can be contacted on 0151 233 5767.
