Since the beginning of Russian invasion, almost 10 million Ukrainians had to emigrate to the European Union. Not all Ukrainian employers and companies relocated, moreover, some companies had to leave the job market. Unfortunately, most Ukrainians have lost their jobs and financial stability, and the issue of rebuilding their career abroad is topical for almost each of them. Staying abroad and adapting to new environment is by no means easy. Due to such circumstances, CSR Ukraine and Career Hub decided to collaborate and launch online career counselling project, European Career Network. It will involve career counsellors and HR professionals from across Europe to help out relocated Ukrainian professionals to find their ground again.
Even before the war, Career Hub, as a career opportunities platform, involved the best consultants, top managers and mentors from across the country to prepare Ukrainian youth for their dream jobs. The war has changed the field of employment, but the necessity of not giving up and creating something topical within the area of career consultation remained.
The aim of this charity project, Counselling for Ukrainians, is to create a network of career counsellors across Europe to provide career support and consulting for Ukrainian refugees in areas of vocational adaptation, professional development and employment abroad.
If you have experience in HR management, career counselling or coaching, understand the specifics of European job market and are ready to use your professional knowledge to help Ukrainians out, we invite you to participate in this initiative.
The consultations will be provided during May 2022, all consultants will have the opportunity to continue collaborating with Career Hub. Our consultants are flexible in terms of time they are able to dedicate to counselling within the initiative.
