The Refugee Talent Hub is an initiative from the business community in the Netherlands. During the refugee crisis, the concept of the Refugee Talent Hub was presented in January 2016 at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. The main idea behind the Refugee Talent Hub is creating a hub / network that is focused on: connecting refugees to (Dutch) organizations. There is shortage on the Dutch labor market, and unused potential and talent of refugees. Companies have an important role in minimizing this gap. Herewith, the Refugee Talent Hub wants to bridge the gap between organizations and refugees. The foundation has a large network of corporate partners (Accenture, Arcadis, Essent, KPMG, Microsoft, Ministry of the Internal Affairs, Rabobank etc.) and works in close collaboration with NGOs like the Dutch Council for Refugees, UAF and other. The Refugee Talent Hub has a growing network and database of talented refugees who are willing and eager to enter the Dutch Labor market.
A solution to bridging the gap between organizations and refugee talent is having a network. Therefore, the Refugee Talent Hub organizes Meet & Greets, recruitment days and specific trainings at the employer’s office. See this video for an example of what we do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SkuHYU7eA8&t=13s
In cooperation with partners, the Refugee Talent Hub also offers work experience programs in which refugee talents get a first taste in working for a Dutch organization. For example, refugee talents are trained to become an Azure expert in a training program powered by Microsoft. Step-by-step, the Refugee Talent Hub works towards achieving sustainable integration of refugees through labor participation.
You work in a small and multicultural team of motivated Refugee Talent Hub employees and consultants from Accenture, some with and some without a refugee background. You will meet a variety of (large) companies and of course many talented refugees. Since the organization is relatively small, your contribution is immediately visible, and you will be responsible for your own work. For example, you will be organizing events with corporate partners, organize online speed dates, interview refugee talents etc. You will manage your own accounts and develop your project management skills. Also, there is plenty of room to express your opinions and sharing new ideas.
Working at the Refugee Talent Hub means that you need to be an allrounder, organized and should have affinity with the refugee topic. Working at the Refugee Talent Hub requires flexibility, and a hands on mentality combined with strategic thinking.
